There are many regions that are famed for wine production. I have been taking a course that familiarizes me with a lot of knowledge about wine. I am still in the module 1 part and I am learning about the main wine producing areas in the world. In Africa, everyone knows that South Africa has the most famous vineyards and wineries. I hope I get to visit them someday.

Here is a list of the renowned wine producing areas. There are many countries that are coming up with new wines every time but the most common are .

  • France
  • Italy
  • Spain
  • Germany
  • Portugal
  • Chile/Argentina
  • South Africa
  • Australia

The most eminent wine producing regions in France are Bordeaux, Burgundy, Alsace, Provence, Rhone Valley, Loire Valley. In Italy it is Tuscany, Veneto, Peidmont, Umbra, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trentino-Alto Adige.

Wouldn’t you love to see Kenya on the list? I had a conversation with someone who was telling me that there was a project to plant vineyards in Turkana and the arid regions on Kenya like North Eastern. He claimed that some grape varieties would do well there. What do you think?
