Question about Wine & Spirits
Wines are named for one of two reasons: the grape variety or the region where the grapes were grown.
The first type is named after either the sole (or principle, if blended) grape variety that makes up the wine. Many times a wine is blended; you may not find that information on the label. Each country has its own specifications that dictate the minimum percentage of the named grape that a wine must contain.
The second way to classify wines, by their region, is quite common in Europe. Instead of the label dictating whether the wine is a Merlot, Syrah, or Cabernet Sauvignon; in this case, the label will say Burgundy, Bordeaux, or Sancerre. This technique is used because many of these regions are famous for a certain grape variety.
