THE OLTREPO PAVESE IN ITALY WILL BE WELL MERITED IT HAS EXCELLENT SPARKLING PINOT NERO WHITE WINES
( NOTHING TO BE ENVIED FROM FRANCIACORTA)
AND IT IS ONE OF THE UNIQUE REGIONS IN ITALY THAT PRODUCES SOME FANTASTIC RED 'PINOT NOIR'
their terroir of lime and clay together with an incredible microclimate and temperature change between day and night is perfect ( 45° parallel is the wine belt remember!! The Oltrepo' Pavese ( beyond the river Po) at one time, called "Antico Piemonte" (Old Piedmont), is an area blessed with a near-perfect balance between its geological make-up and the prevailing microclimatic conditions, rendering it ideal for vine cultivation.

Another important factor, that helps to explain why this area has been used for viticultural purposes since ancient times, is that it is situated at precisely the half-way between the North Pole and the Equator, right on the 45th Parallel. Let us remember that the area between the 40th and 50th Parallel of the northern hemisphere is the so-called 'wine belt'. All the pre-requisites and pre-conditions for producing wines of the highest quality are to be found here, on the lush and generous hills of the Oltrepo' Pavese.
Since antiquity, viticulture has been the protagonist in the history of this land; The Oltrepo' Pavese is an ocean of vineyards that covers the valley...

ask me for more info you won't be disappointed!

The Dry Creek Valley. Every variety they make there is done well and they're nicer people than in the neighboring areas with their $200 wines. Although there is that nut in dry creek valley who supposedly makes the world's most expensive wine, le Bon Marche.
Do something about zin or petite sirah. People enjoy reading about Euro-areas because they have unique wines and histories; Sonoma County is a rare American example of that.

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE MUCH MORE FOCUS QUIZZES FROM TIME TO TIME LIKE Puglia,
old vine zinfandels and where they come from,the new world on Rhone BLENDS & STYLES,BARREL TOASTING AND AGING,right bank merlots, food and wine pairing classics.WHY we drink big alcohol reds but hate omitting that we score them high, buy them and collect them.What is a cult wine,and how created them.

How about New England, Australia. One of the newest regions in Australia but wine making history goes all the way back to George Wyndham of Dalwood Estate fame in the Hunter Valley. It's a generally high altitude, cool-climate region with many vineyards over 900m and has Australia's highest altutude vineyard (approx 1300m). Not surprisingly Sauv Blanc, Pinot Noir, Tempranillo & Gewurz doing well.

I don't know much of New England... but I think it would be fun to "put them here on the map" here in the US.
Are you up to a collaboration? Meaning we prepare a quiz and you revise it just to make sure we are not saying anything stupid?
Cheers
