Romeo and Juliet are together in eternity....
SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS - 2010 and 2012 WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS!!!
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? ]
California, then Italy, then Bordeaux.
California then Italy and France tie.
Piemonte then Toscana, third is Friuli. Other then Italy, Spain, which is mostly Priorat.

California or bust baby!
4. South Africa
6. Misc of a few different countries such as Chile and New Zealand.
2. German Riesling
3. Italy (Only Tuscany)
9. New World (Australia, Chile, Argentina)
>40% Germany followed Cal and Aussie 15% each.
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.
Sometimes I read a thread and think we ran out of stuff to talk about like 4 years ago. ~spo
1 - Bordeaux

"One may dislike carrots, spinach, beetroot, or the skin on hot milk. But not wine. It is like hating the air that one breathes, since each is equally indispensable."
Where is the Rhone valley?
Only death is free, and even that costs you your life
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.
No good deed goes unpunished
CA - 53%
Bordeaux - 32%

But it is closely followed by Bordeaux, Rhone and Germany.
Most of my wines are producing in Switzerland a lot of swiss specialities:
and some blendeds
"50 different grapes just for pleasure"
Over the last 10 years I have bought more from Italy than anywhere, but must hold those Bordeaux and Rhone's for many years!
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.
Reminded me a little of the wines from Alsace, which is a good thing. I have never seen any here in Texas.
