Tasting great wines may be a transporting experience, but there’s no substitute for actually getting off the couch and going there.

When we travel to the world’s wine—growing regions, the whites seem more crystalline, the reds more potent. There’s a natural, unforced ease in pairing the wines with the local foodstuffs. The wines feel at home—and the longer we stay, the more we feel at home, too. 

Each year, our editors scour the globe to suss out the absolute must-visit spots. To a few traditional wine regions, we’ve added several modern classics and a sprinkling of up-and-comers, making a compelling list of destinations.

No matter your tastes in wine or travel, we think you’ll find something to enjoy in this year’s update.
