Here are some of the statistics from this week's show:
The California Wine Institute resports there are currently 2,83 wineries in California; 4,600 wine grape growers; and over 110 different grape varieties grown. A total of 526,000 acres of winegrapes are planted in California, although vineyards oly take up 1% of the state's terrain. By volume, Charonnay remains the leading varietal wines from California, followed by Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot, White Zinfandel, and Pinot Grigio.
By the way....was there any doubt that Charonnay is the leading varietal???
