Picture this: You’re sitting in a comfortable art-filled tasting room sipping a delicate cuvée while taking in the panorama of the rolling hills and vines beyond. No, this isn’t Champagne in France—it’s Franciacorta in Italy. It may not be as famous, but that’s precisely what makes it so intriguing. Though one of the country’s best-kept secrets, it should be on every wine lover’s bucket list. Likewise, some of the world’s best wine regions are blissfully under the radar, many just a few hours away from their more famous cousins. Some, like Oregon’s Willamette Valley and Long Island’s North Fork, have developed immensely in the past few decades thanks to pioneering winemakers. Others, like Sicily, have been producing wine for centuries but remain off the beaten path. For oenophiles looking for an adventure, these seven under-the-radar wine regions are great places to start.
