Many countries worldwide produce wine. This results in country-specific characteristics, which are influenced by soil conditions, climate and production methods. Here you will find a small extract of wine producing countries:
Argentina is the world's sixth largest wine-growing country with over 220,000 hectares of vineyards. The country's focus is on red wine production. In recent years, the production of quality wine in particular has increased significantly. The first documented viticulture goes back to the year 1554. The foundation stone for today's viticulture was laid when a Spanish priest needed mass wine and cultivated it himself. In Argentina, the cultivated red wine varieties include Bonarda, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Barbera, as well as white grape varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Traminer, Malvasia, Silvaner, Pinot Blanco, Riesling and Chardonnay. On EXPERT24 you find brands like Bodega Norton, Kaiken or Puro. Thus no borders are set to the benefit.
Australian wine is becoming more and more popular internationally. The wine growing regions Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Western Australia offer partly better climatic conditions than other regions. Extensive land areas are subject to the most different climatic influences from dry-hot up to sultry-cold. As different as the climate is, so are the grape varieties cultivated there. These range from Shiraz, Cabarnet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Semillon to Riesling. More than 200 years of viticulture began with a note from a ship's captain who said that the local area would be ideal for viticulture. After planting the first vines, settlers from overseas brought their own grape varieties. With the "marriage" of the prospectors, Australian wine also experienced an upswing. On EXPERT24 you find brands of Brown Brothers, Motörhead, Penfolds, Rosemount, Wildcard and Wolf Blass.
The wine growing areas of South Africa belong to the most beautiful and unusual areas in the world. Gentle wine hills in the foreground, steep mountains in the background, waterfalls tumbling into the depths next to them and the one or other view of the sea can be caught. A legally regulated designation of origin divides the wine growing areas, according to descending size, into geographical units, regions, districts, Wards, Estates and Single Vineyards. On EXPERT24 you find excellent South African Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Pinotage and also Sauvignon Blanc.
Wines from the United States come mainly from California, Oregon, New York and also Washington. The first beginnings of wine production go back to the 18th century. With the immigration of French and Italians, the knowledge of wine production was also imported and further developed. Due to economic crises and the Second World War, some years of wine production were very mixed. In the meantime, things are looking up again and America has now secured a place for itself on the international market. Red wine varieties such as Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Merlot, Shiraz and Zinfandel are grown here. Among the white wines, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Vidal Blanc dominate the market.
The cultivation and production of wine in Germany is subject to German and European wine laws. In the south-western German state of Rhineland-Palatinate the most wine is grown in Germany (2/3 of the cultivated area). Already the Celts and later the Romans were familiar with winegrowing and the fermentation of alcoholic beverages. Depending on the size of the sites, a distinction is made between wine-growing areas, wine-growing regions, large sites and individual sites. The leading grape varieties here are Riesling, Müller-Thurgau (Rivaner), red Pinot Noir and the early-ripening Dornfelder. According to the German wine law, a distinction is made between the categories Prädikatswein, quality wine from certain areas, country wine and (table) wine. On EXPERT24 you find selected quality wines for example from Franz Hahn.
