I can identify with his comment and during my 30 years of travel I have made a point of visiting wine regions around the globe. Here are a few of my favorites:

Enjoying wine has always been part of my travels also and during my 30 years of globetrotting I have had the opportunity to visit some of the world's finest wine regions.

    NAPA VALLEY GRAPEVINES IN JANUARY

    Napa Valley, one of the world's most famous wine regions is only a short drive from my home, so I visit regularly.


    LIVERMORE VALLEY VINEYARDS

    Only a short drive from the San Francisco Bay Area, the Livermore Valley offers a fine selection of wineries.

    SANTA CATARINA WINERY, PALMA DE MALLORCA

    During a trip to Spain we visited the north coast of the island and sipped vintages at a 500 year old winery.

    TUSCANY

    During a Mediterranean cruise I made a point of visiting Tuscany. I was amazed at how much the region reminded me of California valleys. I felt right at home.

    FREIXENET CAVA CAVES

    While spending time in Barcelona I ventured out to Penedes, Catalonia's premiere wine region, where I visited several wineries, beginning with Freixenet. In addition to touring the underground caves, I sampled some excellent sparkling wines.

    JEAN LEON WINE BARRELS

    During the day trip I also toured the Jean Leon winery.

    TORRES WINERY GRAPEVINES

    At the Torres Winery I even had the chance to wander out into the vineyards.

    TAPAS

    Each winery offered a fine array of delicious tapas along with generous portions of their vintages.


    MAUI'S WINERY

    While visiting the island of Maui I took the Road to Hana tour. One of the highlights of the tour was tasting at Maui's Winery.

    One of my travel goals is to eat my way around the world, and that also includes tasting the world's finest wines. It's a tough job, but well worth the effort. Cheers!
