These made a big splash on the international scene, winning awards, garnering high ratings and amassing enthusiastic disciples.

An increasing number of international grapes are grown, most notably Cabernet Sauvignon, Bonarda, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. All styles of wine are made from dry whites and reds, rosés, sparkling, late harvest sweet wines and fortified wines.

Flavors follow suit with heavy leather, tobacco... Read More
