Popular Wines Made From These Varietal Grapes

Understanding key characteristics of each wine varietal is one of the first components of helping you identify the wines you like, and why.

New World wines are generally labeled by varietal, where Old World wines are labeled by region (i.e. Bordeaux wine refers to a wine made in the Bordeaux region of France. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are two varietals grown in Bordeaux).
