Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

argentina, because my parents loved the country when they were working there and i could have a place for them to go back and visit whenever they want.

I'd go for Provence, since the food is awesome, the climate is great and the lifestyle more agrarian than the rest of France.

Sonoma...it's so much more chill than Napa. And California is hard to beat.

Chile. Studied abroad there. Fell in love with the people, the country, and most definitely the wine!!

Valle del Maipo, Chile. Many reasons: my wife and I love traveling, we love Carmenere wine, my wife loves Chile and spent a year abroad there, and lets face it, France is overrated.

Ok, not really, that would still be a killer place to live, but I still go with Chile.

Is this it? what am i supposed to do here?

Santa Barbara County. Smaller vineyards and more in depth wines. Melville is my absolute favorite!

There are few places that I have been that are more beautiful than some of the winding, tree-canopied roads in west Paso Robles, so I would have to buy one there, more for the beauty of the surroundings than anything else, though much of the wine from that region is excellent as well.

I would have to go with the Rhine River valley in Germany, I lived there for five years, and would love to go back. Not just for the wine but also the food.

I picked Marlborough because it was the only NZ option there, but really... any place in NZ -- north island or south -- would be fantastic. Went on a hiking tour there 10 years ago. Beautiful scenery, nice people, great food and wine.
