For hundreds of years, France basked in the reputation of being the world's greatest producer of wines. Today, that reputation is being rivalled by other wine-growing nations on four continents, and the French wine industry is facing new challenges. Since 2003, the industry has been trying to reinvent itself, producing new wines for a changing world and European market, while continuing to provide the world's greatest wines, produced on
estates with perfect conditions and centuries of wine growing tradition.
In terms of range of choice, France still offers some of the greatest wines, with the greatest variety, and at excellent value for money, even from the main wine areas.
