Wine gift hamper fans 'might like to visit Aquitaine'
Published on 30/03/2010

The perfect summer holiday for those who enjoy a wine gift hamper could be a trip to Aquitaine, as a visit to the viticulture region has been recommended by a travel reporter.

Writing in the Independent, Cathy Packe states that the area "produces more high-quality wine than any other French region".

She attributes this to a number of factors, which include soil composition and micro-climates.

The location is divided into districts that include places such as Medoc and Entre-Deux-Mers and Ms Packe advises that the best way to see the countryside there is from the sky.

Hot-air balloon rides are available courtesy of local winemaker Michel Fonvielhe, with flights taking off from the field beside his property, the Domaine de Durand.

The Bordeaux region of Aquitaine has been included on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 2007 and guided tours of its vineyards are available throughout the year, tourisme-aquitaine.com reports.
