It doesn’t matter which country you are visiting, whether it’s Spain, France, Australia or South Africa, my advice is the same… Try and find the little, off-the-main-route places, especially ones you’ve never heard of.
On the last visit to France, I found a wonderful place and experienced Chateau Verisse Loupiac… Heavenly!
You are more likely to meet the vineyard owners or the winemakers and experience a more fulfilling visit.
Also, Wines found in locations off the beaten track may not be available back at home so make the most of your visit. Try and buy Chateau Verisse Loupiac from a UK supermarket… impossible!
