Among the best wines made in the USA, the most famous are certainly the excellences produced in California. Not only for a question of flavor, but also for a numerical question, in fact about 85% of US wine comes from the lands of Californiane. Among the most refined are the Merlot, the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Chardonnay, but also the renowned Sauvignon Blanc comes from the vines that overlook the ventilated and fresh lands of coastal areas such as Mendocino, in the north of California, or areas such as Paso Robles, Monteroy and Santa Barbara, located more centrally. The Californian wines are becoming more and more present on tables all over the world, even on Italian ones. North of San Francisco is the well-known Napa Valley, compared to the Langhe, Montalcino but also to Bordeaux in France, a valley capable of giving birth to the excellent wine. The area south of Carneros instead, is particularly suitable for the production of sparkling wines. In the Californian hinterland, the scorching climate means that 90% of the regional wine production comes to light, the vines of Carignane, Grenache and Barbera, are just some of the best. In the lands south of San Francisco, 70-100 km from the Monterey Bay, the areas of Santa Clara and San Luis Obispo are constantly growing and production is increasing. The particular warm climate and favorable geographical position, makes California the mother of the most delicious wines such as Pinot noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The red wines are soft, full-bodied and very aromatic, the white Chardonnay is able to satisfy even the most refined palates, with its scent with peanut butter and vanilla. The wine Zinfandel, is very similar to the Italian Primitivo.
