FRANCE

For hundreds of years, France basked in the reputation of being the world's greatest producer of wines. France still offers some of the greatest wines, with the greatest variety, and excellent value for money, even from the main wine areas. To many, France is the benchmark for fine wine.

French wine is produced in several regions throughout France, on over 2 million acres of vineyards, and in a typical year between some 7 to 8 billion bottles. France has the world's second-largest total vineyard surface and has been a leader in the use of Biodynamics and Natural Farming practices.

Two central concepts to high-quality French wines are the notion of terroir and the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) system. "Terroir wines" reflect their place of origin, which are specified on labels of French wine, usually in terms of the wine's appellation. Appellation rules closely define which grape varieties and winemaking practices are allowed in each of France's several hundred geographically defined appellations.
