Wine Regions

There are different wine regions all around the world. These regions produce many different grapes and types of wine. Known as “the true wine grapes” the Vitis Vinifera have a reputation as ┬áthe grapes used in the making of fine wine. Grapes and region can determine the best wine.

Each diverse grape has varying smell and flavor attributes when it is made into wine. Be that as it may, wines produced using individual varietals will likewise shift in character contingent upon where on the planet the grapes are developed: for instance, vineyards in new wine growing regions will deliver wines with distinctive flavors and smells different from vineyards of the old established regions, notwithstanding when the wines are produced using literally the same grape varietal.

Old And New World Regions

Distinctive areas are known for both delivering diverse grapes and diverse styles of wine all arouncastle-280814_640d the wine world.

Thus the old established wine regions and new growing regions have been coined the Old and New World. It is imperative to know their distinct differences. By reputation, the Old World regions are known for creating wines that are more dour and terroir driven. In contrast, to New World areas that are known for delivering wines with more prominent force. For instance, Cabernet Sauvignon grapes developed in France will probably create wines stamped by naturalness and unpretentious organic product flavors. While Cabernet Sauvignon grapes developed in California will probably deliver wines that are more organic product forward.

In future posts, we will research and explore these various regions that are all about wine.

    Hi Ronn,
    Very interesting.

    I know absolutely nothing about wine, but you have me curious about something. Would wines produced using individual varietals still shift in character if they were developed in the same region, but on different vineyards?

    I assume that the way they are cultivated would have an impact, but if they are in the same environment, the same type of soil (I’m speculating) what kind of differences would we find between the two wines?

    Thank you in advance,

      Hi Catherine,

      Wow! As a person that knows absolutely nothing about wine, you sure ask some excellent questions. I will touch briefly on them from my experiences in wine tasting in the same region. Yes, your assumption about cultivation is correct. One reason is some winegrowers will let their grapes slightly age longer than other winegrowers before harvesting. I call this manipulation in the process. This will have an impact. In my experience in wine tasting, I have noticed slight differences in taste and aroma. For instance, one type of wine from a certain winery might taste a little more dour or sweeter than one from a similar winery close in the same region. There are always differences in wine from different wineries may they be so slight no matter what the region is. The differences are just more vast in different wine growing regions. Your interaction has provided me with ideas for future blog posts.

      Thank you

        It’s such an interesting topic, with so many subtleties.

    I don’t know much about wine, but I’ve been wanting to learn. This information is spot on for me. It never quite occurred to me that different regions would have different quality wines, but that makes perfect sense! Thanks!

      Hi Jay

      Even in the same regions you will be able to tell the differences in wine from the different wineries. They are not as vast as the differences from different regions.

    Your post is always so educational, I feel we are learning more and more about wine every time we read your post. I do want to say we still can’t get ourselves into red wine.

    I have bottles of good red wine (I believe) sitting on the top shelf crying for attention.

    Looking forward to learning more.

    Hi Ronn,

    Really good article. Very informative. I have got to come visit your site more often.

    I had no idea the age of the wine region would matter so much. I will take notice of the flavours next time, and will compare and old world with a new world wine.

    Nice article. I myself have tried wine, I believe it was White Zinfandel? I didn’t care much for it, but maybe that one just wasn’t for me and maybe there is one I’d like. I’ll keep an open mind! Thanks!

    • Ronn says:

      Hi Brooke,

      Zinfandel wine tends to be sweet. Do you prefer a more dour taste or a balance between sweet and sour? I would have to determine what your taste buds prefer before I could recommend you a wine.

    Wow. Great article. You definitely know your wines. I have drank different wines in the past. I just never really knew that much about them. I learned a lot from your post. Thanks so much. Jeffrey

      Thank you, Jeffrey

      We learn from each other. My suggestion to you would be, whenever you find a wine you really like study the brand and the label and where it is processed at. Brands such as Mondavi wine have expanded to other regions. Their origin is in Northern California, but they have expanded to South America.

    Great to see a site on wine. I was a professional winemaker in my former life (before joining Wealthy Affiliate). It is a huge niche, but one where you will have endless opportunities to write about this fascinating subject. I will follow you with interest!

    I started my wine site in Dreamweaver many years ago, and need to upgrade it to WordPress, but haven’t worked out how to do it yet!

    Which styles of wine do you prefer?
