Term (also oenotourism) for tourism activities that focus on the scenic, cultural and gastronomic features of wine-growing areas as well as wine-related activities. These include visits to wineries with wine tasting and purchase of wine products, visits to wine museums, guided walks through vineyards and wine trails, and seminars on wine. Day trips along wine routes are also organised by wine-growing institutions and associations. Wine tourism developed from the late 1980s in the New World such as Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and California and has become an important pillar of the economy.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
