In wine lies truth…

Wine has been cultivated and drunk since the 6th millennium BC. Today’s Georgia and Armenia are considered to be the places of origin for wine cultivation. And even in ancient Greece and Rome, the gods of wine were worshiped. A glass of wine a day is even said to prolong our lives. We’ve compiled the best wine tasting spots for you to explore with your TripMates and enjoy a glass or two of the drink of the gods. Find your like-minded wine lovers on JoinMyTrip!



Napa Valley, USA 

Between San Francisco and Sacramento, you’ll find the world-famous Napa Valley. The proximity to both cities makes for a perfect day trip to the valley. You can choose from over 400 wineries and taste your way through award-winning Sauvignon Blanc. It’s recommended to book wine tours in advance, as many tastings are often fully booked with nearly 3 million visitors a year.

Cape Wineland, South Africa

Near Cape Town, you’ll find the country’s most exquisite wineries. South African wine is also world famous. We recommend you to stay a few days in the area to enjoy the beauty of the Winelands to the fullest. In Stellenbosch you will find 148 wineries, many of which are very historic and offer not only wine tasting but also very good food in exclusive restaurants.
