Sometimes I think my job title should include “detective,” as in “Peter Dills: Wine Detective.” I guess, for that matter, most of us who carry a pen could fall into that category. Things that I assume are common knowledge might be unknown to those of you who just have a glass or two of wine now and then.
Indian Sauvignon Blanc Think about this: Where does your wine come from? Where does the label say it is from? There is a simple way to know by looking at the label if the wine is estate grown and, generally speaking, the label will tell you the percentage of that grape.
Indian Chenin Blanc For example: “Estate grown” means that 100 percent of the grapes come from the winery even if that winery owns vineyards in different regions, i.e. Paso Robles and Lodi. On the other hand, do the grapes come from a small section of Sonoma or Napa — which are given AVA labels; an American Viticultural Area is a designated wine grape-growing region — or can they be pinpointed to the Alexander Valley, a region on the edge of Sonoma? If the latter case, then it has to be at least 85 percent wine from Alexander Valley.

Carved out of a sea of second growth redwoods dating from the 1800s, Big Basin Vineyards is an anomaly in the Santa Cruz mountains south of San Francisco.
Indian Rosé The Santa Cruz Mountains are most commonly known for growing cabernet sauvignon, zinfandel and chardonnay. Since planting their vineyards in 2000, Big Basin Vineyards is organically farming mostly Rhone varietals on 10 acres of estate vineyards alongside of some recently planted pinot noir.
Indian Sauvignon Blanc Using its estate fruit and purchased fruit from other organic vineyards as well as pursuing minimalist intervention in wine making, this winery is producing world-class wines that consistently garner acclaim from wine writers and consumers.

Natural wines attract die-hard loyalists—and naysayers, such as renowned wine critic Robert Parker, who dismiss them out of hand.
Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) India From Paris to Tokyo to Copenhagen to Brooklyn, wines made with little to no chemical intervention—so-called natural wines—are the toast of the cognoscenti.
Indian Cabernet Shiraz Large, wet snowflakes started to fall just as I left Paris, and by the time the car rolled through the medieval city of Blois, with its sharp spires, the whole of the Loire Valley wore a cloak of fog. I continued southward, past châteaus that looked like vague phantoms, or were those merely trees huddling in the gloom? Pierre Jancou, the conjurer of a succession of enormously popular Paris restaurants and wine bars—La Crèmerie, Racines, Vivant, Heimat, and a new project percolating on the Rue Servan as he recovers from a broken leg—had sent me here, explaining that if I wanted to understand natural wine, I’d need to visit Claude Courtois and his son Etienne.
