THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, THANKS TO OCOA BAY

Surprising wines, to be tasted on the spot, feet in the water.

THAILAND, WITH THE KHAO YAI REGION


Which defies the laws of classic viticulture. A great discovery, with its dozen wine estates. As in GranMonte, where more than twenty grape varieties coexist on clay-limestone soils, producing delicious wines, such as their Crémant Extra Brut (100% Chenin Blanc). You have to see it to believe it!

NORWAY AND ITS NORTHERN VINEYARD


Where thanks to global warming and the creation of interspecific grape varieties (aka PIWI) such as Solaris in white and Rondo in red, vines could be planted on the 59th parallel north, as in the Lund Vingaard estate. The trick: plastic sheeting to cover the floors and help gain a few degrees Celsius, thanks to the reflection of the sun.

INDIA, WHERE THE BANGALORE REGION SHINES


Dubbed the Indian Silicon Valley, Bangalore has an interesting terroir. With a vineyard culminating at an altitude of 1,000 meters, temperate days (26 to 28 ° C) and cool nights, Bangalore allows the production of balanced, generous and precise wines, such as the Viognier Reserve Collection from Grover-Zampa.
