Which Wine Should I Buy?

Uvas - Vino

My friends are always asking me about wines…why would that be…? he! he!

One of the most common questions they make is: Which wine to buy? …when it should really be: From which region and from what kind of grape should I get the wine?

There are more than a thousand types of grapes in the World but there are always some grapes that because of the type of region, the weather, the soil, the Country and even the laws, affect not only the flavor, aroma and looks of the wine but the quality, quantity and the popularity of the wine’s reputation. Then, to wrap my story, I want to share with you some suggestions of which are the grapes that stand out from each of the World’s most popular regions producing wine. In that way you could be sure about your decision in picking the wine…I hope my list helps you:

Spain: Temparanillo (red), for me, there’s nothing better than the ones from Rioja and Ribera del Duero.  Airén and Albarino (white) Macabeo (cava/sparkling).

Italy: Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Montepulciano and much better if they’re from Piedmont orTuscany

France: uff… France has so much history, fame, weather and regions that is the country that offers the best wines in the World, so it is complicated to summarize. The region of Sancerre produces exquisites Sauvignon Blanc. Alsace is outstanding for the Riesling (white), Bordeaux for the blends or mixes of grapes but we can mention the Cabernet and the Merlot (reds), Burgundy it’s known for the Pinot Noir (red) and the Chardonnay (white), Loire produces excellently the Sauvignon Blanc (white) and the region of Champagne; well…who doesn’t know what’s the most popular article from this region?. But I must make clear that France offers much more than what I’m telling you guys here. 

Germany: Riesling (white) 

Napa, CA: Cabernet Sauvignon (red)

Sonoma, CA: Chardonnay (white)

Australia: Shiraz (red), preferably from Barossa Valley

South Africa: Chenin Blanc (white)

Portugal: Oporto (wine fortified with brandy)

New Zealand: Sauvignon Blanc (white) from the region of Marlborough come the best ones.

Argentina: Malbec (red), very popular, by the way, from the region of Chile: Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere (red)

*One more “ñaqui”... the more information you get from the label, the better could the wine production quality control be…The Kitchen Doesn’t Bite, and neither does the wine… salud!!!
