Immediate Wine Country Wish Visit List – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

I have visited many wine countries and have oh so many to visit. And I certainly have those that are nearby and I visit often and there are those not terribly nearby that rest on my mind.

Wine countries are evocative and are all beautiful– at least I think so–I love the terrain, terroir and people and of course the wines you meet along the way.

I feel the need to connect with those places where I both drink wine and year to make their discovery. The historical path as well as current development of the wine world unfurl many places–that you could travel from the beginning to the end of the year.

Right now–coming to mind;
Finger Lakes
Alto Adige
Ribera del Duero
Santa Cruz Mountains (my plan to visit keeps moving and yes I am nearby)
Valle de Guadalupe
Rias Baixas
Turkey (yes, I would love to to EWBC12)
Willamette Valley (going in August)
Côtes du Jura
Republic of Georgia
South Africa
Valle d’Aosta
Limarí River
Barossa Valley
McLaren Vale
Wondrous wines and sojourns ahead–discovery of great wines, land, people and food from these and other great lands as well. And this least is by all means not listing every single wine country to visit– just those that come top of mind this very instance.

About James Melendez

I have two blogs on this descriptor page--I use to be able to make separate. My fragrance blog is to express my thoughts on fragrance. A passion in addition to wine. I think it is a stellar component to the senses and that which I am in love with. I hope you like both blogs. My "wine" blog also incorporates those categories intimately involved - wine, food, travel and lifestyle. We all need food and water to survive but we need wine to nourish our soul. My favourite varietals are Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo, Grenache, Syrah-Shiraz.. for my red wines. And I often circle back to these varieties and sometimes they are my home varieties. The journey of wine is an historical footnote also marked by viti-viniculture and artistry that makes this beverage a living one. I have worked professionally in the wine trade and have loved all aspects; marketing, history, science and art of wine. © 2014 James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy— All Rights Reserved – for my original Content, logo, brand name, rating, rating graphic and award and designs of James the Wine Guy.
