California is the viticultural engine room of the USA and dominates with approximately 90% of the production.
Zinfandel is perhaps California's signature grape but some of the world’s finest Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and especially Cabernet Sauvignon is found here. Indeed, Cabernet Sauvignon, mainly from Napa for the past three decades has battled against Bordeaux in the Paris Tastings (Judgement of Paris) and won!
Californian wines are elusive and often expensive, but they are able to compete with some of the best in the world - come along and taste for yourself.
But we'll also explore wines from the rest of the country - do not fear - there is more to the USA than California!!
