Poll: What Region is the Highest Represented in your Cellar?

Just curious as to what people are cellaring.

Personally, my cellar consists of almost 50% French wine, but only 20% of that is Bordeaux (12% Burgundy, 10% Rhone, 7% Champagne and a few others).

Bordeaux is the most represented region in my cellar.

Question:
What Region is the Highest Represented in your Cellar?

Choices:
Bordeaux
Burgundy
Australia
California
Italy
Germany
Portugal
Spain
Chile
New Zealand

I don't know what you guys are talking about. Italy has three votes. Read the results very carefully. It is a screwed up graph because the region is written just under the bar for its' results.

Nevermind! Red Face It is a poor display of the data, though.

I voted Italy although it is very close between that and CA. Of course, if you treated France as one unit, between the Rhone and Champagne that would probably be number 1 (I've got, litterally, no Bordeaux and very little Burgundy; the first by choice, the second by price prohibition for the stuff I really like).

California now. From my beginning wine collection til a year and a half ago, it was always Bordeaux. Bordeaux is now #2 in my collection, Rhone #3.


Just one more sip.

It is a close battle in my cellar - 4 regions are within 1-2% of each other (Rhone, Italy, Spain, Bordeaux). I voted for Italy since I don't see Rhone in the choices.

Maybe it should now. Who knew Paumanok was the Chateau Latour of Long Island and that they have been "making great wines since 1983" ?

We need to pay more attention.

Sorry about that! I can't add it without deleting the votes.

Of the choices offered, I would have to say it's a toss up between California and Australia.
However, they don't even come close to the amount of Washington and Oregon wines in my cellar.

California is first by a long shot (what can I say, the wife loves CA PNs and if I keep her happy she doesn't complain about how much I spend) followed by Bordeaux. Then comes Australia, Washington, and the Rhone.

If I broke it down further than that Sonoma and the Central Coast would be ahead of Bordeaux, and Napa would be right behind Bordeaux and ahead of Australia.

Off the top of my head I'm about:

40% Bordeaux
25% Italy (mostly Brunello, some Barolo)
15% California Cab.
10% Aussie Shiraz
5% Chile (Cab and Pinot)
5% Chateauneuf du Pape
