Wines Information Worldwide

There are, basically, two kinds of people, when we talk about wine: those who "like" it and those who "adore" it. Of course there are even those that have the pleasure of working with it, since growing, passing trough many forming phases until the final and delicious task of tasting and rating it.
Generally, Wine grapes grow exclusively between 30 and 50 north and between 30 and 45 degrees south of the Equator. The world's most southerly vineyards are in the South Island of New Zealand near the 45th parallel.
The 13 nations that export it most are: France, Italy, Spain, Chile, Australia, the United States of America, South Africa, Germany, Portugal, Hungary, Moldova, Croatia and Argentina. In the United States, California can be considered one of the biggest wine producers, including Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley, Paso Robles, Santa Inez and Temecula wineries. The vineyards of Algeria used to produce many fine wines, especially during and immediately after the era of French colonization, but the resurgence of Islam among the populace since the 1970s has greatly reduced this industry.
The search for quality wines justifies itself by the search of a product capable to confer an immediate and complex sensation, in the visual, gustative and smelling. The quality is the intensity and the delicacy of this amount of things.
The appreciation of a wine quality does not depend only on its reputation, tradition or prize. What really matters is the quality present in the glass; not the bottle appearance, the label, the fame or its advertising campaign. The real wine taster must have the ability to ignore what the general media tries to bombs us as "Snob Wines" that are nothing more than those expensive ones, because, unfortunately, people tend to think that the most expensive and imported ones are, automatically, the best ones and that wines coming from certain and famous regions, companies or harvests are, in fact, superiors.
There are all around the world, courses offering classes so wine enthusiastic can acquire more knowledge by meeting other likely minded people to share information.
