France is the world’s most important wine producing country and remains the centre of fine wine production. Its tradition and history in wine is unrivalled. France has had the greatest influence on the style and quality of many of the world’s regions – particularly those of the New World. Many indigenous French grape varieties, like Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay are now widely planted throughout the world.
The French drink the most wine per capita consumer and it is embedded in their culture. French wine drinkers are parochial in their drinking (as with their food), and drink wine produced in their local region (wine shops also stock local wines in the main).
