Where will the best wine regions be in 2017? Conde Nast Traveler checked in with some of the world’s top sommeliers to find out where they recommend traveling to.
If you are looking for an up-and-coming region, head to Hungary.
“Hungary has lingered in the shadow of its wine-savvy neighbor, Czech Republic, for long enough. Some of today’s most interesting European wines come from the Tokaj region in the country’s northeast, not far from the border of Slovakia,” writes Laura Giannatempo.
Beaujolais, France, is a classic for its young, red wine of the same name but it's making a name for itself in other ways, too.
“Beaujolais is pushing the envelope by innovating and rescuing old winemaking traditions,” Leo Monterrey, partner and wine curator at Alter and BarAlter in Miami tells Conde Nast.

“Thanks to its proximity to the Indian Ocean, the climate is almost Mediterranean and ideal for a variety of reds and whites, from Bordeaux grapes like cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and sauvignon blanc to chardonnay and chenin blanc,” writes Giannatempo.
Discover Croatian wine with a trip to the island of Hvar.
“Wine’s been made here since the ancient Greeks, and this history has left an impressive tradition of indigenous varietals like Plavac Mali, which is believed to be an ancestor of zinfandel,” notes Giannatempo.
