To enjoy wine one needs to learn about the different wines available. Wine color, quality and taste depend largely upon the geographical characteristics of where the grapes are grown: the quantity of sunlight, the quality of the earth which in French is called the “Terroir”, the seasons, the amount of rain, of cold, of heat, the drainage of the earth and the age of the vines. Each type of grape needs different combinations of the above. That is why for example a Pinot Noir grown in California does not have the same taste as a Pinot Noir grown in Burgundy, France. Even within the same territory, wines made with the same grape type will taste differently depending on the preferences of the wine maker, the quality of the vines, and the aging process of the wine.
