Burgundy, Piedmont, and Marlborough are your favorite wine regions for a reason. Their wines are classic and dependable. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try somewhere new every once in a while. Other countries in Europe, South America, and even Asia make delicious wines, too. The bottles with which you return home will only expand, not change, your ever-growing wine cellar.
