Château de Goulaine
The Château de Goulaine was owned by the Goulaine family except for a time between 1788 and 1858 when it changed hands to a Dutch banker during the French Revolution. One of the last castles in the Loire to still make wine, Goulaine produces some of the Loire Valley white wines including Muscadet and Folle Blanche.
The castle was owned by a family in Tuscany when Florence and Siena were still city-states. Ricasoli survived the internal Italian struggles of the mid-1200s. Today, you can find their most prestigious wines like “Castello di Brolio,” for around $70.
There are records of an order of 6000 liters of wine during Charlemagne’s reign in the late 700s. Schloss Johannisberg was destroyed once during the German Peasants’ War in 1525. This is where the Riesling vineyards are located. The oldest in the world and also home to the first late-harvest wines in 1775. Before that, rotting grapes were not considered suitable for wine production.
The oldest recorded sale of wine from Schloss Vollrads was in 1211 when a unit in Mainz placed a written order. The Rheingau-based winery produces a wide range of Riesling wines. You can visit their restaurant to celebrate their 800-year wine reign and sample their Rieslings with German classics like Bratwurst.
Codorniu was the first sparkling wine producer in Spain that didn’t start with foam. Codorniu has had vineyards and a winery since the mid-1500s, however in the 1820s Codorniu started making Cava calling it Champagne. Today Codorniu is one of the top three Cava producers in the world with an annual output of nearly 5 million barrels.
