We're going on a world-wide trip here!

So let's start the journey!

Classic European Wine Regions

The wine regions of Western Europe are the ones everyone has already heard of, and for good reason! Long histories of winemaking and many excellent traditions, you will want to know these places off by heart!
This section will explore the France, Italy, Spain and a few other countries.
Start here if you're a fan of the classics!

New World Wine Regions

'New World' usually refers to a small but ever-growing rag-tag group of non-European countries that are working on fresh styles of wine, using the classic varieties.
This section includes, the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Chile, Argentina as well as other young wine producing countries.
Start here if you like something new and funky!
