Guide to German White Wine
Germany take its white wines very seriously. We know this because white wines make up over 65% of the country’s vineyards. Germany’s cooler climate produces white wines with lean, laser-focused fruit flavors and heightened acidity. What makes German white wines so compelling is their ability to age a long time.

Serious Sweets: Sauternes Wine Guide
Sauternes represents the sweeter side of Bordeaux and is made from the region’s rare white grapes. Built on the thin-skins of Sémillon with a bit of bright acidity, generously donated by Sauvignon Blanc, Sauternes (and Barsac) make exceptional dessert wines that share a particular affinity for oak and will age for several decades.
the less known north coast region is wine
The Lesser Known North Coast California Wine Regions
Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley are amazing regions to visit when you want to experience the glitter and glam of California’s wine country. However, if you’re passionate about the grapes, the dirt, and the reality of wine growing, there are a few other places within the North Coast that you need to have on your radar as well. Not only do these regions have true grit, they also produce incredible wines that can easily rival their star-studded neighbors.

Understanding Napa Wine
Had it not been for the overambitious visions of just a few individuals, Napa Valley might have never become one of the most important wine regions in the world. When Napa Valley was a fledgling wine region, America’s obsession for Bordeaux wines was feverishly high. At the time, Jackie Onassis was known to sip Château Haut-Brion Blanc in the White House. Napa’s vintners no doubt observed Bordeaux’s success and looked to the region for inspiration.

The Wines of Rueda, Spain
Your internationally travelled friends will never come back with stories of Rueda. It’s a place where few outsiders will venture, even if the region produces some of the most amazing wines, along with a plethora of exotic agricultural products (look up Piñones Reales–Spanish pine nuts and raw sheep’s milk cheese, Queso Zamorano). The region is patchwork of vineyards on the flat high plains south of Valladolid, that’s home to a rare indigenous white grape called Verdejo (“vurr-day-ho”).

The Wines of Lazio
Even though Rome has a history of winemaking since before the Romans, Lazio (or Latium, as it’s also called), has more recently been considered the doldrums of wine. During the last century, the major grapes, including Trebbiano and Malvasia, were overcropped to produce boring, sweet white wines. That is, until recently!

The Cabernet of Chile
The Chilean economy boomed in the 1990s. The government was transitioning back to a democracy and this gave wineries greater opportunity to export to Europe and the United States. The wines created a stir internationally due to their great potential for quality and good value. Seizing the opportunity, larger US and French wineries rushed to set up operations in Chile, creating shiny new wineries and buying up vineyards.
