7 to 8 billion bottles of French wine are produced throughout France per year. France is the largest wine producer in the world. The rules of the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) closely define which grape varieties and winemaking practices are approved for classification in each of France's several hundred geographically defined appellations.
These appellations can cover entire regions, individual villages or just specific vineyards.
France is the source of many grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot noir, Sauvignon blanc, Syrah and more. The most famous wine regions of France are Bordeaux and Burgundy, but depending on your tastes, we can organize any wine tasting tour throughout all regions of France
