Travelling for Wine: The Most Beautiful Locations to Find Them in

*collaborative post

For those that love the idea of tasting and collecting exotic wine while visiting beautiful locations for their next holiday, we have just the perfect places for you to visit.

Hawke's Bay in New Zealand

The country besides the land Down Under has gorgeous scenery seemingly everywhere, but  Hawke's Bay is the place to be if you would like to taste some of the country’s finest wine while enjoying the stunning backdrop of the mountains and fir trees. The valleys at Hawke's Bay are host to over a hundred vineyards and nearly as many wineries as well, producing Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Douro Valley in Portugal

If you are even remotely interested in wine investment, you need to visit the Douro Valley in Portugal. When a place has become a UNESCO World Heritage Site primarily because of its history of wine estates, you know you have to collect a few bottles of Vino Verde and maybe even some of the local wines made from alfrocheiro grapes.
The shimmering blue waters of the Douro river, the deep blue, open sky, and the seemingly unending green valleys with vineyards; it’s a calming sight to behold for more reasons than one, especially when you are sipping on some of the world’s finest wine!

Côte de Nuits in France

There is no other place more iconic than Côte de Nuits when it comes to costly, fine wine. It’s almost hard to believe that this tiny, but absolutely gorgeous 30km stretch of villages, wineries, and vineyards can produce enough wine to generate such astounding amounts of money in the wine business. If you are a wine connoisseur, you know that there is no better place to collect your premium bottles than Côte de Nuits.

Which Wines Should You Collect?

There are three factors to be considered primarily while buying exotic wine, as stated below.

The Region - La Romanee, Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune, and Mosel are the locations that produce some of the costliest wines in the world, but there are other places in Africa, Australia, and New Zealand as well, that produce fine wine of premium quality nowadays.

The Grapes – Any wine made from Pinot Noir, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chardonnay grapes are going to be of the highest quality.

The Age – The older a wine is, the costlier it will be, but only when stored properly in a climate-controlled wine cellar. The same applies after you buy the wine, so look into wine investment from Octavian if you want to begin building a collection of fine wines. Over 10,000 wine enthusiasts, sellers, and merchants across the world have their wine bottles stored at Octavian. If wine investment is on your mind, this is the place where your collection will appreciate in value.


If all this talk of wine and striking vistas has you excited, it’s time to get started because any of these locations we just discussed look even better in person.
