The Bounce study rewards Italy and its ampelographic richness and variety. Portugal and Spain on the podium, France in fourth place
Italy is the perfect destination for wine lovers

What are the best and worst destinations for wine lovers? This is the question posed by Bounce, a luggage storage company present in 1,000 cities around the world and therefore capable of providing an all-round view of global wine tourism, which analyzed 5 key aspects - average wine consumption, average production, area under vines, number of wine tours, cost of a bottle of wine - of 25 countries around the world, summarised in a weighted score, the “Wine Lover’s Index”.
At the top, with 8.28 points out of 10, is Italy, “home” to some of the oldest production in the world, some of the most famous in the Veneto, between Venice and Verona, two destinations much loved by wine lovers and others. According to Bounce, this is due to the more than 400 native varieties cultivated, which translate into the right wine for every palate, as well as to the supremacy of production in terms of quantity and a great variety of products - and therefore prices - accessible to all.

In second place is Portugal, with 7.88 points, thanks to its two wine regions of reference - Porto and Douro - both UNESCO World Heritage Sites, as well as the highest number of wine tours per 100,000 inhabitants and the record, anything but accidental, of average wine consumption: 47 million hectolitres per 100,000 inhabitants. Also on the podium, in third place, is Spain, with 7.16 points, with Cava and Rioja on the crest of the wave, and the largest area under vines in the world, amounting to 968,400 hectares. Only fourth place for France, with 6.86 points, despite the extraordinary popularity of Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne, due to a substantially small number of wine tours. Rounding out the top ten are New Zealand (#5 with 5.53 points), which has the second highest number of wine tours (4,062, according to TripAdvisor), Greece (#6 with 5.24 points), Chile (#7 with 5.01 points), Argentina (#8 with 4.65 points), Australia (#9 with 4.54 points) and Hungary (#10 with 4.23 points).
