We're covering new world wines by covering California wines specifically. The seven leading grape varieties in California are Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Zinfandel.
We'll cover 2 whites and 4 reds.
Merlot and Zinfandel will be in the red running and Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc will be our whites.
While California is new to wine, compared to European wines, they have definitely put themselves on the map for some of the world's best wines. Let's learn the history here and really enjoy ourselves some domestic wines.
