European countries have wineries in Italy and Naturaleza País Vasco landscapes in Spain to boast of. However, it is a common misconception that the best wines in the world only come from locations like Naturaleza País Vasco and other parts of Europe. The continent does host some of the best wine making regions in the world, but it would be wrong to presume that non-European countries are unable to produce fine wine.
Here are the top 4 non-European countries that take viticulture very seriously:
The United States of America
Thanks to the effort of winemakers in California, the USA has finally become home to some of the finest wine producing regions in the world.
The weather and soil conditions in certain parts of Argentina make it ideal for wine production; the grape vines are extremely unlikely to be affected by pests and disease.
Wine tourism is extremely popular in Australia and the country hosts some of the most tourist-friendly vineyards in the world with the production of biodynamic wines.
The quality of soil in South Africa’s river valleys lends the wine produced there a distinct rich flavor.
