The World’s Best Vineyard franchise has unveiled its latest list of top vineyards to visit. Argentina’s Zuccardi winery in Valle de Uco took the top spot for the third year running.

A global list

The runners-up were Marqués de Riscal in Rioja, Spain and Château Margaux in Bordeaux, France. Altogether, wineries in 16 countries made it onto the list which is voted for by 600 global wine and travel experts. It aims to highlight “the very best wine tourism destinations across the globe” and “the sheer diversity across both established and emerging wine tourism destinations.” This year, new entries from Lebanon and Russia also won places in the top 50.

Wine tourism "hugely important"

Andrew Reed, managing director of wine and exhibitions at William Reed, founders of this annual hit-list which is now in its third year, said: “Wine tourism is hugely important to the global economy and local economies, creating jobs directly at the wineries but also encouraging visitors to the area and the associated revenue which that generates. This is more important than ever with the recent global situation, and we know that by shining the light on wine tourism as we do with the World’s Best Vineyards the message gets out to more people to come and discover the uniqueness of wine and where it is made.”
