Mmm .. French Wine ..

France is renown for it's wine and produces almost eight billion bottles every year. With the world's second largest total vineyard area behind Spain, France also competes with Italy for the position of being the world's largest wine producer.

Two concepts central to top end French wines are terroir, which links the style of the wines to the specific locations where the grapes are grown and the wine made, and the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) system.

This regulates which grape varieties and winemaking practices are allowed in each of France's several hundred geographically defined appellations, which can cover regions, villages or even vineyards.
