France to lose to Chile???  Haha

They are closing rapidly IMO. They have a fantastic range of latitudes and altitudes to play with and have recently started taking their AC ratings (or equivalent) and production standards seriously. Climate Change could really mess France up in terms of their wine production in future years.

I was lucky and privileged to spend 4 days in the South African Cape wine region a few years back, staying in a house overlooking the vineyards. 

I think that may have influenced my vote 🍷😜☀️

I'd have Chile before S Africa, and 3rd overall after NZ and France.

Only drink red, so my votes based on that
