Wines Only from the Source Our world of wine roughly breaks down into three distinct categories. The vast majority of wines are produced using a handful of international varieties that are produced around the globe, I don't know how much of the market these wines control, but I bet nine out of ten bottles sold is not far from the truth. A second set of wines are well-known, and produced in significant quantities in specific regions, and these probably count for nine of the next ten bottles sold, leaving about one percent of the market free for the final category of wines.

    Speaking of off the beaten path grapes from Rioja, the less-well-known Graciano makes really nice reds as well. Usually found in Rioja blends, there are some varietal bottles making their way to the US now. We finished one off last night, from Rio Madre (a label I bet was created just for the US market) and at $10 or so, this is a pleasure-giving bargain.
