The popularity of Oenotourism continues to grow and experts believe that the wine tourism movement is operating at only 20% of its potential and could easily double in the near future.
Among the factors helping the movement to expand are 'wine roads', specialised itineraries through wine-producing regions, as well as annual events like Open Cellars in the spring, which draws millions tourists to vineyards.
Aside from offering an opportunity to see where and how wine is made and discover the difference of tasting it at its source, oenotourism offers visitors a chance to learn about traditions and culture linked to winemaking and country life.
Although wine is the chief focus, oenotourism also offers tourists a chance to discover rural areas and their nature, sample other farm products, like olive oil, and feast on an array of regional foods and cuisine, creating bridges of urban spaces with rural areas.
In fact wine and culinary experiences are a driver of destination choice for an increasing number of leisure travellers.
