France is arguably the world's most important wine producing country. For centuries it has produced wine in greater quantity - and reportedly quality - than any other nation. Wine is ingrained in French culture at every level.

The enduring attraction of French wine is the variety of styles available. Thanks to the country's wide range of climates and the different particular geographical features of each sub region, France can match any style of wine with the highest quality. The sites on which France's vineyards have been developed are considered of vital importance and are at the heart of the concept of terroir.
