Drinking a glass of wine in a simple room is not the same experience as sipping exact one under a canopy of stars. What defines the taste of any wine is the when and where you are sipping it.

This concept may anger the more logical minded members of the wine industry but several companies are already investing in wine tasting rooms. These tasting rooms offer a relaxed vibe and elegant window views of beautiful locales and are increasingly becoming part of big brewers’ calling cards.

The practice of making these structures to lure in possible customers have been started by newer wine industries belonging to Chile and Argentina and several states like Michigan in the United States for the American continent.

These architecturally elegant and scenery centered rooms invites the tasters to focus on their senses and the taste the wines provide.

When we hear the word wine, we always associate it with Napa Valley.  But can you believe that thirty years ago, the world’s top wine experts and wine lovers alike dismiss the Napa Valley wines as so-so?  But today, the Napa Valley Wine Country has become a famous tourist spot not only for Americans but for wine connoisseurs around the globe.

Of course, this means that Napa Valley is becoming more and more congested.  The good news is that a handful of advanced wine-making techniques have started in uncommon wine countries like India and even in Tasmania.  This is definitely good news to all wine experts and wine lovers out there because it means that there are now new flavors that are distinct to these wine regions; another reason is that as the wineries in California and France become crowded, we can opt to visit these other wine regions that offer more than just new flavors but also a spectacular scenery and natural charms.
