Immediate Wine Country Wish Visit List – James Melendez

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 love wine and have had the privilege of working in the wine trade as a senior national wine marketing manager for a wine, food and home goods retailer in 30+ US States. I executed into making wine experiential and made 'wines of the world' programme work in a highly regulated framework for a successful business proposition. My "wine" site also incorporates those categories intimately involved with wine such as food, travel and lifestyle. This site incorporates my many dimensions of interest. I love to review and also talk about many aspects of wine. I have been privileged to visit many wine countries and find them enthralling no matter how many times I visit. I love all aspects of wine: viticulture, history, winemaking, brand development, wine regions and many more aspects. This is a living tradition that needs documentation, education, reporting and reviewing. Do I have favourite varieties and styles? I love so many varieties and often it is situational and yet there are time honoured wines that I anticipate and I am passionate about. I like all colours of wine and all styles. I have had a mad passionate affair with sparkling wines and they are always top of mind. Wine nourishes our soul and is the key to connecting with other people at our dinner table.
