Did you know that with the 200 native grape varieties, France has about 2900 different wines? To speak more concretely, if we tasted a different French wine every day, it would take 8 years to taste them all! As a wine lover (amateur? Enthusiast?I never know how to say it), I wanted to create a France wine map poster with all the useful information about French wines. In France, when we are invited, we usually bring a bottle of wine. And too often, when one of my guests arrives with a bottle, I don't know where the wine comes from. That's why I created this map to help me find where this French wine comes from, but also what grape varieties are used.
This map of French wines is in French, but we also have an English version. And if you are also a whiskey, beer or rum lover, you can check out our other posters:

Sweet white wines from the Southwest such as Monbazillac and Sauternes are the best to drink with a slice of Foie Gras.
