The World of Wine
The purpose of this exercise is to make you familiar with the world
of wine. For each type of wine presented in the column at left, list the
principal type of grape and include some notes about intensity of the
wine. I have started the table, so that you can see what I am after. I
have restricted the table to France, Italy and Spain (okay, I included
New Zealand too), because in other wine regions the grape variety is
typically on the bottle and if you know your French, Italian and Spanish
wines, you can pretty much figure out how it is going to taste (the
exceptions might be Zinfandel and Shiraz).
