Wine list Guide

This list includes the most representative wines of today by grape variety and region. This means that the wines on this list may change with time and market tendencies. They are just a small sample of the huge wine production in the world, but I am hoping that after completing my studies, I will be able to recognize the characteristics of them. I plan to use this list, as long as my economic situation will allow, as a guide for choosing the wines for the exercises.
