GVARV, Norway, Nov 25 — On one of the world’s northernmost frontiers, grapevines are growing on hillsides, and talk among some farmers is about terroir and aroma as global warming and new technology push the boundaries of wine growing.
Vineyards In India “Maybe a touch of raspberry?” opined Wenche Hvattum, one of two farmers at the Lerkekasa vineyard west of Oslo — on the same latitude as Siberia, southern Greenland or Alaska — debating aromas in the ruby-red juice from their freshly pressed grapes.

If the party is all women, it’s safe to focus on some fun white wines, such as viognier, torrontés, sauvignon blanc and chardonnay. An alternative is to use a true French-style rosé. French rosé should not to be confused with that sweet juice called white zinfandel. Rosé is generally dry to semi-dry and crisp and pairs perfectly with heavy hors d'oeuvres or light entrées. Women also seem to enjoy the bigger/bolder-style red varietals such as cabernet sauvignon, syrah and zinfandel.
Winery In India Male-female: If the party is a balanced mix of women and men, then include the above style wines and make about three of each available. Include a few red choices, such as pinot noir, gamay noir or Beaujolais. These are light-style red wines that are easy to enjoy in group settings and are wonderful with cocktail party hors d'oeuvres.
Vineyards In India Bring your own: Another option that is a ton of fun and will help keep the cost of the event down is to have a BYOB party. Assign each of your guests a specific varietal or style of wine to bring to the party and plan accordingly to make sure that you have enough of each varietal to accommodate each of your guests so no one will miss out on tasting a particular wine.
