A natural wine, bottled with sediment, so must be carefully decanted; complex and fruity with a touch of funk.
Cabernet Shiraz India EASTERN EUROPE IS HOME to an ancient wine culture, though it’s not always obvious from the wines today. Just as Prohibition largely severed the modern American industry from its nascent origins, Communism separated countries behind the Iron Curtain from centuries of winemaking traditions. The post-Communist rejuvenation of these traditions, and their adaptation to the modern world, are among the most exciting stories in wine today.
Rosé India Some of these countries, like Georgia in the Caucasus, were cradles of winemaking history, and though they are less well-known and understood, they are nonetheless beginning to make new marks. Benefiting from international investment, Hungarian wines, both sweet and dry, thrill once again. Croatia, too, is beginning to establish a global presence with its dry wines. But perhaps none of the former Iron Curtain countries have come quite so far as Slovenia in redeveloping a vibrant wine culture.

There's something in the air in Argentina. The last time we were there, we were amazed at the generosity of the Zuccardi family, which operates wineries outside of Mendoza in an area that doesn't have enough schools for the children. The family decided to use some of their profits to establish private schools for the children of their workers. Happy workers seem to make better wines. All of Zuccardi's wines ( Santa Julia is their main brand in the U.S.) are competitive in their price ranges.
Sauvignon Blanc Chardonnay ($12) is old-world styled with plenty of cleansing acidity and no more oak than you would find in a good Burgundy.
