Wines of the World

Wine is one of the most popular alcoholic beverages in the world, and is produced in almost every country in the world in some form. The bulk of Wines of the world come from Europe, due to the mild climate that favors high-quality grapes. In considering all the Wines of the world, some connoisseurs say French wines are the best. In France, grape variety, climate, and the growing and processing technique produce wine superior in taste and sophistication. Major regions in France that produce wine include Alsace, Bordeaux, Burgundy (which includes Chablis and Beaujolais), Champagne, the Loire Valley, and the Cotes du Rhone.

Germany is also a major contributor to the wine world. Most consider the best German wines to be white wines. Wine production in Germany is located mainly along the Rhine River, and is divided into three areas: the Rheingau, the Rheinhessen, and the Rheinpfalz. Wines from northern Germany come from a different type of grape entirely. Spain and Portugal are also major contributors to Wines of the world. Spain is well-known for its sherry, and is a major exporter of sparkling wines. Portugal manufactures very popular dessert wines and table wines. Italy produces the world's largest variety of wines. Popular wines from Italy include Barolo, Gavi, and Chianti.

Due to the lifting of trade restrictions, wines are produced by many non-European countries and can be an inexpensive alternative to European wines. Australia produces celebrated Cabernet, Pinot Noir, and white wines. Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, and Romania produce table wines that are quite cheap, but good. The United States is also a large producer of Wines of the world, with California being the largest producer due to its mild climate. The Napa and Sonoma counties of California host many wineries and produce some of the world's best cabernet and chardonnay.

The combination of wine and cheese may sound a little cliché, perhaps, dare I say, even a little cheesy. Still, since their invention, wine and cheese have been a dazzling duo, going together like strawberries and champagne, Merlot and steak, boxed wine and Taco Bell. Doing it their way, wine and cheese are the Laverne and Shirley of alcohol.
