Ask most wine lovers how they fell in love with wine and it normally comes down to two things: a great bottle or a great trip. If you ever get the chance to travel to a winery, it’s an experience you won’t forget. Wine and travel go hand in hand, Airbnb makes it that little bit easier to get amongst the vines. Warning, this could inspire some epic travel plans.
1. Mendoza, Argentina
Malbec helped gain Argentina world-wide attention, saved countless barbecues and opened the door to red wine for a lot of people. So staying a stonesthrow away from some of the country’s most famous wineries is a must for any wine lover. Gorge on empanadas and asado then wash it all down with some of the finest Malbecs money can buy.
2. Waipara, New Zealand
New Zealand is a beautiful country. It’s got the scenery and landscapes straight out of films and super friendly locals. And the most beautiful part? The South Island. Stay just outside of Christchurch in the Waipara region and feast on some of the most progressive wines in the country. And Muddy Water is just up the road.
3. Piemonte, Italy
Misty mornings await you in this green and pleasant land in the north west of Italy. There’s plenty for the adventurous wine love to explore round here. Olive groves sit side by side. Make sure to check out Barolo as well as Barbaresco.
