“Cycling and wine have long captured the imaginations of American travelers with dreams of gliding through verdant, château-dotted valleys with a baguette and a bottle of Cabernet Franc. But cycling through wine country is no longer an activity reserved for the French (or Francophiles). Wine regions from Africa to Argentina are opening new cycling paths and offering programs for bike enthusiasts—a cleaner, healthier and more in-depth way to taste the terroir of a region. Tour operators have jumped on this faster than you can say santé, offering a litany of wine-centric cycling excursions around the world.”
