Italy is one of the world's foremost names in wine production, in constant competition with powerhouse France for the title of world's top producer. Hand in hand with their large-scale production, Italy is a dominating force in exporting.
Although the Basilicata wine region is one of Italy's smallest -- it devotes barely more than 1 percent of its land to wine production -- it is known for turning out one of Italy's most well known and celebrated red wines, the Anglianico del Vulture.
It might surprise you to learn that Spain is the third largest producer of wine in the world, right behind the likely leaders -- Italy and France. But Spain devotes nearly 3,000,000 acres of land to wine growing.
