Wine Country Tasting Wish List Revised 2013 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

I am essentially and fundamentally an explorer.  I want to taste and have a wide breadth of experience–after all it does betray the intellect to not have a full spectrum of experience?

I wrote Wine Country Tasting Wish List  because there are so many wine regions that I have not tasted wines from.

I did have some wine worlds where I had not tasted from in a while like Peru—even New Zealand.   What I am finding more often is that more wine regions once north of impossible to find now increasing available (slowly of course).

We do live in the best of times… rather the best of times for wine and also the entire beverage arts.  We have never had a period like this where quality is a top of mind thought for both consumer and producer.  More wines are traveling the planet—that is a great thing.  I feel privileged to taste the land of Italy at a given day or to find a wine from Lebanon, Bulgaria, Croatia, Uruguay to name a few with greater ease.  Also, no other time in history we are much more variety conscious—no longer just accepting a place but wanting to know what makes up the wine we are tasting.

Hence, here are a list of wine regions that I am looking for –let me know if you have any tips (beyond traveling there)—a revision from my previous article:
