France: The Home of Wine

  

If there’s one thing that France is famous for, it’s wine. In fact, two French wine-making regions have even achieved Unesco World Heritage status – meaning they’re “of outstanding value to humanity”! So if you like a tipple when you’re on holiday, why not choose a campsite in or a short drive to one of its many spectacular wine regions so you can taste the best right from the vineyard?

Even the kids will enjoy a visit to a vineyard – they’re usually set in stunning countryside with beautiful chateaux and interesting wine-making equipment with huge barrels to explore. And some provide alcohol-free grape juice for the children to ‘taste’.
