Bordeaux, by the smallest of margins over Cali and then Rhone, but only because this category includes Sauternes.

I've got a few bottles of the Old Winyards left. 1296 - very good year. Almost as old as I am, it was laid down by my father. What say we open one, eh?

Bordeaux, but only because of futures.

Setting aside futures and looking at the bottles I "just buy", Italy would dominate, with Burgundy and Rhone coming right after. Australia would have been #2 a couple of years ago, but I'm having trouble differentiating between many Ozzies lately, leading to fewer purchases.

Like some others, the highest-represented region is the Rhône, which surprisingly isn't one the choices. After that, I think it's Australia, with Italy close behind.

[Given those two predominant regions, would anyone care to guess which varietal has become my favourite? Big Grin ]

Technically, my cellar is mostly CA if you add up Pinot, Syrah, Zin and Cabs. If we split up CA by vairetal, it would be Bordeaux.

It's a small country between Death Valley and Las Vegas. The king of the Rhone Valley lives in Scotty's Castle. It's known for its outstanding wines, because water is in such short supply.

Hello, SEBALUDY. Reading your post makes me realize how many wines I've never tried! I do not think I've had a wine from Switzerland. I'll have to search one out.

The only ones I have had were while in Switzerland. We enjoyed them (off-dry) but how can you not enjoy wine in Switzerland. Wink

Reminded me a little of the wines from Alsace, which is a good thing. Smile I have never seen any here in Texas. Frown
