Each year, the magazine's editors travel the world to experience the best in wine, food and cultural adventure, and discover the most exciting places you must visit. From classic regions to lesser-known corners, this year's list represents just that—the best in overall cultural experience, timeliness, travel infrastructure and, of course, wine quality.
"A glass of wine has the transcendent ability to transport your palate to a new location. For wine lovers, there is no better way to cement that connection than to explore the world around those vineyards," stated Publisher and Editor Adam Strum. "We are thrilled to use our expertise to name these incredible destinations as our selection of the ten best locations to visit to further discover one's passion for wine through travel."

That's why Wine Enthusiast's 10 Best Wine Travel Destinations includes a range of regions, with profiles featuring where to dine, where to stay, budget tips and prominent wines, plus local-in-the-know suggestions and the best time to visit.
