When wine is life (and it is), there are certain things you shouldn’t leave the mortal coil without doing. 

It’s time to cork it before you cark it with these wine-centric must-do’s.

Run the Medoc marathon 

You can’t spell ‘wine’ without ‘win’. Such wise words couldn’t be any more relevant here. Now you can run a marathon before sampling some of the best drops Bordeaux has on offer. It’s a wine-wine situation.

Go wild on a wine safari 

30 minutes from LA. Open-air Safari cars. Stanley the giraffe. Need we say more? No. But if we did we would go on about taking in the scenery and all the local wines you could muster. Did we mention Stanley?

Indulge in some wine spa therapy 

They say a glass of red wine is good for the ticker. Imagine what an entire bathful could do! Take a dip in the antioxidant goodness of a bitey merlot and let your skin sing. Take your pick from Ella Di Rocco in London or the Yunessun Spa Resort in Japan.

Win at life with a wine fight 

St. Augustine Spanish Wine Festival in Florida ends its run every year with 2,000 wine fans donning their whitest whites and splashing their reddest reds all over the place. Normally, we’re all about drinking wine… but haven’t you always wanted to throw some at someone?

Dive for your wine 

Who says a good drop needs to be stored on land? The absolute legends at Endivo Vino know the secret to making wine extra fab – and it lies at the bottom of the ocean.

Sip with South African sharks 

There’s a reason they call them ‘great whites’. Hit the coast of South Africa, cage dive and visit old mate Jaws before smashing back some Bot River region faves.

The only real question is: where to first?
