Tunisia: Wine Tasting Holiday

Despite being a Muslim country, Tunisia has an ancient history of wine making and still produces good, if not internationally famous wines. September is the best time to see the winemaking industry in Tunisia with Grombalia in the north being one of the country's major winemaking regions, also Jendouba in the west. Newer varieties of grape have been introduced since the 1990s and white Coteaux de Carthage is particularly good. Wine tours in Tunisia are not a major industry in Tunisia but operators such as tunisiafirst.co.uk do arrange 4-day wine and food tours in Tunisia.
