For centuries, wine was considered a beverage for the privileged and elite. But today in the US, consumption of wine rates second only to beer. Long established California vineyards have been joined by wineries cropping up in places like Texas, Missouri, and Maine. In fact, wine vacations, which include bed and breakfast wineries and wine-tasting road trips, have become quite popular across America.
There are as many types of wine as there are wine lovers, but you don't have to be a wine connoisseur or collector to enjoy a glass of wine with bread or cheese. French wine or California wine, vintage wine or table wine, red wine or white wine, burgundy or zinfandel, choosing just the right wine to accompany your favorite dish is easy and affordable.
