New Zealand's Hawke's Bay wine region nestles up against the astonishing natural harbor that lends the area its name, sprawling primarily across flat, former river-beds. These generally gravel-rich and nutrient-poor soils, including the increasingly well-known Gimblett Gravels sub-region, have lent themselves to little else but grape growing. But when they first began to be planted in the early part of the 20th Century, everyone discovered just how good they were for wine.
Wines To India Consequently, you don't see many hillside vineyards in Hawke's Bay. When the former floodplains of the area's many rivers have leveled out such a gorgeous section of land for wine-growing, why spend the extra effort and money to farm the hills? So rare, indeed, are such vineyards in the area, that stumbling upon the La Collina vineyard comes as quite a shock. You might even experience a brief sense of vertigo, as if someone has grabbed the whole of the Gimblett Gravels and tipped it up on edge.
Grover Vineyards India I first stumbled on the vineyard in 2005 by complete accident, thanks to a combination of a poorly calibrated GPS device and user error. Thinking I was making my way to the Trinity Hill winery tasting room, I took a right hand turn too early, and ended up literally driving through a vineyard on gravel roads. I took a left to circle back around, and there, straight ahead of me was one of the most stunning vineyard sites I had seen (or still have seen for that matter) in Hawke's Bay.

The grape obsession in Jeff Fischer's life yields Habit wines The journeyman actor's fascination took him to Santa Barbara to hang with winemakers. Persistence got his bottles into some of L.A.'s top restaurants.

Of the many wrinkles in the Italian wine tapestry, one of the wrinkliest is about as far northwest as you can go in Italy. There, tucked away in the Alps beneath looming Mont Blanc, the tallest peak in the chain, is the smallest Italian viticultural region, brimming with little-known wines capable of offering great pleasure.
Wine Club India $28 Lovely, lightly spicy aromas, slightly exotic and a bit funky with a smooth, silky texture.
Wine Business In India The problem is not so much what to call this region, but in which language to express it. Along the entire northern border of Italy, language and culture refuse to respect political boundaries. In Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italian merges with Slovenian. In Tyrolean Alto Adige, it collides head-on with German. And in the Alpine northwest, where Italy kisses both France and Switzerland in a linguistic ménage-à-trois, it’s Italian-French.
