You have probably checked the great wineries off your bucket list. However, there have been recent discoveries of other wineries producing outstanding vintages. Here are five hidden wine regions waiting for you to discover. 

Inle Lake region, Myanmar - Myanmar has only two wine estates, both located near Inle Lake. A 30-minute drive from the lake into the Shan mountains is the Aythaya wine estate which opened in 1999, according to CNN. Wine tasting happens in the Sunset Wine Garden restaurant, where the sun sets over the vineyards for an otherworldly feel. The Red Mountain Estate opened in 2002, and is the only other winery in Myanmar.

Kakheti, Georgia - Located midway between Asia and Europe, Georgia is well-known for its grape varieties. Georgia is actually one of the world's oldest winemaking regions. Archaeologists have even found evidence of wine production since 6,000 BC, which has made it to be included in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list.

Brda, Slovenia - The 28 mile wine region of Brda sits along the Italian border and has been called a "mini Tuscany"- even the local dish is influenced by Italy. Only an hour away from Ljubljana, most of the vineyards are small, family-run operations, and almost all offer some combination of wine tastings, meals, tours, meals, wine sales and accommodation.

Douro Valley, Portugal - Douro region is the origin of port wine. It is said that there has been wine production in the region for more than 2,000 years. The Six Senses hotel, a new hotel, has a renovated 19th-century manor house set on a hill overlooking the river and Douro Valley. Highlights include wide views while swimming in the pool, or a pleasant stroll through the property's organic garden.

Borjón, Shenandoah Valley - If you are going to Shenandoah Valley, go a little more down Shenandoah Road, and you will find Borjón, reports Huffington Post. The fact that they are included in the menu at Taste, the Gold Country's finest restaurant tells a lot about their quality. If you drink some of the Shenandoah Valley's well-known Barberas and Zinfandels, you are most likely savoring Borjón grapes.
