There are several countries that are increasing in popularity for their production of wine. The best vineyards are springing up in the unlikeliest places and are, surprisingly, producing the best wine. For instance, vineyards are increasing in numbers in Argentina, Australia, Germany, South Africa, Portugal and Chile. Although it is commonly expected that places like France and Italy, who have long battled for first place, to find the finest of wine, vineyards and wine production are steadily decreasing there.

A varietal of wine begins with the type of grape used. A varietal largely determines what makes a bottle of wine good; however, the vintage year also goes into consideration as changes in the climate can cause grapes to grow early, grow too late and can change the flavor of the grapes, altogether, depending upon when they mature. This is why some attest to a bottle being of a good year, despite the fact that the same varietal of grapes are used and they are grown in the same region.

Thankfully, the Internet allows people to access only the finest of wines—according to their varietal and vintage year—in an effort to obtain the best. More remarkably, is that thanks to the Internet, it is possible to obtain bottles from far and wide to secure the best-tasting wines. For instance, choosing to shop now online for a bottle can provide expedient results in obtaining what’s desired. There are several guides and reviews to safely guarantee a wine that will be pleasing to taste.
