One of the intriguing things about wine is that the place they come from has everything to do with the resulting product.  A biologist might pose this as the classic 'nature vs. nurture' argument.  Every wine region has its own traditions and laws that encompass everything from watering vineyards to label requirements.  The region produces the fruit, the winemaker the wine.

As people who enjoy wine, it is our job to understand some of the basic elements that go into winemaking and grape growing in an effort to fully appreciate where the wine came from and why it is special.

In the pages here, we begin to outline some of the more important wine regions, highlighting their norms and oddities.
