Wine Folly Names Top Wine Destinations for 2022
Ten years, over a thousand articles and two award-winning books later, Wine Folly continues to be a platform dedicated to helping people discover wine. Now that wine travel is resuming, Wine Folly celebrates 10 years with the top 10 wine destinations to visit in 2022.
In 2011, Madeline Puckette was a 20-something sommelier serving wine across the bar when the idea popped into her head: “I should start a blog to help people learn about wine!”
Then in 2019, Wine Folly merged with Global Wine Database to create Folly Enterprises. While the company name has changed, the mission remains the same: make the complicated world of wine easy to access.

Since 2014, the Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir Rootstock Trial – involving growers from across Greater Victoria – has been comparing the performance of Pinot Noir scions grafted to14 different rootstocks on two commercial vineyards 15 kilometres apart and with more than 100 metres elevation difference. One vineyard is located in a warmer coastal area of the Mornington Peninsula, while the other sits in a cooler more elevated location.
At both vineyards, Pinot Noir clone MV6 was grafted to 14 rootstocks with three replicates per treatment and one panel per replicate. Grapevines were also planted on their own roots as a control.
Reliable Wine Information on Mobile
It’s frustrating to be standing in a wine shop, and you find a bottle that excites you with a QR code on the label, so you pull out your phone, and get a dead end.
Many producers want to include such codes on their bottles, but struggle to maintain links or keep the information at the end of the rainbow up to date. Leveraging the power of the Global Wine Database, winemakers can dynamically generate wine information cards with scannable QR codes that lead to vetted wine information.
