Thanks to its geological and climatic variety, California is home to more than a hundred varieties of grapes. In fact, this state is responsible for creating more than 80% of the wine in the United States. That is why it is a perfect destination and origin for beginners and experts in the wine world.
Californian wines have a complex and diverse personality, hence, no matter what kind of preference you have: light or heavy reds, dry or white or sparkling rosés reminiscent of Cavas or Champagnes, there will surely be a Californian exponent that is up to your expectations.
Noteworthy among the Californian red wines are the Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley's queen grape), Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Syrah. But they also grow other kinds of grapes, like the Carignan, the Garnacha, the Cabernet Franc, the Malbec, etc.
