Incredible selection of wines from all around the world

There are different interpretations by different people about how to classify wines by type. You can go based on the Color or the Family it belongs to.

If you go by the color then the general classification is:

 

Red Wines - These are rich and savory in flavor and look beautiful in the glass.

 

White Wines - These are delicious, lovely , crisp and light.

 

Rose Wines - These are milder in flavor but they are the best with any kind of food.

 

Port & Dessert Wines - After a full meal these would be perfect - sweet and port.

 

Sparkling Wines - If its a wedding or anniversary these have to be a part of the event.

 

If you go by the family then there are the following:

 

Cabernet - also known as the king of red grapes, known for its character and    diversity.

 

Pinot Gris - A delightful and refreshing gem of a wine

 

Chardonnay - The superstar of white wines, known for its variety of flavors.

 

Shiraz Merlot - Merlot is light and supple. Very approachable and good for a newer wine drinker.

 

White Zinfandel - often abbreviated as White Zin, is an off-dry to sweet, pink-colored rosé wine.

 

Beaujolais - Beaujolais is a French Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) wine generally made of the Gamay grape which has a thin skin and few tannins.

 

Pinot Noir - A red wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera.

  • Most Popular Regions and Grapes

    Wine is made in virtually every country in the world. These countries are often referred to as “Old World” or “New World.” “Old World” consists of regions with long histories of wine production, such as Europe and parts of the Mediterranean. Some of the most well-known “Old World” wine regions include France, Italy and Germany, and these regions focus greatly on terroir—the unique characteristics of the soil and climate, which give their wine a sense of place. “New World” (as the name suggestions) is used to describe newer wine-producing regions, such as U.S., Australia and Chile. These regions tend to have hotter climates and generally use different labeling methods; they tend to use grapes rather than region on labels for recognition.
