The American Bordeaux Region

There are also wines made from fermenting other fruits or cereals, whose names often specify their base, with some having specific names.

Wine testers swirl their glass to encourage the wine to release all of its powerful aromas. Most don’t fill the glass more than a third full in order to allow aromas to collect and to not spill it during a swirl.

The Vikings called America Vinland (“wine-land” or “pasture-land”) for the profusion of native grape vines they found there around A.D. 1000

California is the fourth-largest wine producer in the world, after France, Italy, and Spain.
