Major Wine Styles
New WorldIn general, the United States and other wine-producing countries in the Western and Southern Hemispheres produce fruit-forward, easy drinking wines that are labeled by predominant grape varietal.
Old WorldIn Europe, it is common practice to blend two or more grape varieties, resulting in earthier, subtler wines that are at their best with food. Old-world wines are typically labeled by region rather than varietal.
