French wine is produced all throughout France, in quantities between 50 and 60 million hectolitres per year, or 7–8 billion bottles. France is one of the largest wine producers in the world so wherever you go to play a round of golf, you're likely to find vineyards nearby. 

Head East of Paris for the Champagne region and a taste of the local world-famous bubbles. A couple of hours' drive south of Paris is the Chateaux region of the Loire Valley where you find names including Sancerre, Bourgueil, Chinon and many more. Drive further down to the South West of France, the most visited wine region of the country with the likes of Bordeaux, Médoc and St Emillion areas to enjoy some delicious vintage wines. Burgundy is another stop along the Rhône and Saône rivers in Eastern France for aficionados of the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes while the whole coastline from Perpignan to Nice is home to numerous 'terroirs' including rosé wines, a favourite in sunny South of France after a game of golf.
