USA at Bordeaux Index

The USA is the 4th largest producer of wines in the world; California alone produces twice the entire production of Argentina (the world’s 5th largest producer). The country is famous for its New World-style big, fruity cabernet sauvignons and merlots from larger than life producers like Robert Mondavi, but this is by no means an exhaustive description of the wines to be found the USA. Bordeaux Index stocks many of the best American wines, across the most prominent states and from top wine producers. Some of Bordeaux Index’s preferred producers from this region include: Dominus, Opus One, Shafer, Harlan Estate, Screaming Eagle.

California is by far the most important state for wine production; its vastly varying climate and terroir provide for a variety of distinct wines. In Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Zinfandel dominate. Other important regions include the Russian River Valley and Sonoma County.

In Oregon, top producers Drouhin have managed to bring out the best in the thin-skinned Pinot Noir grape.
