The Tour de France is one of the most prestigious bicycle races in the world and attracts the top riders in the world to compete each and every year. This race features some of the most beautiful countryside in France from the mountains to the wineries. For spectators it is a chance to discover French food and wine in a excellent environment.
Now Australia has its own grueling bicycle race that draws competitors like Lance Armstrong and rolls through the beautiful country including little known Australian wineries. Last week 200 million people experienced the Tour Down Under with half of them lining the race route to see the best bicyclists in the business go by.
Also during the race new light was shined on not only the cuisine of Australia but also its wine country, which produces some truly unique and amazing wines. For wine lovers looking for something new to try that is out of the classic lines of French, Italian or even US based a wine from one of the wineries in Australia will be a sure hit. The best part is a bicycle is not one of the wine accessories needed to enjoy a bottle from Down Under.
