From the inky depths of Napa Cabs to the wonderful wines of Walla Walla, Washington, American wines offer lots of diversity.

About American Wine

The United States is the world's fourth-largest wine-producing country. All 50 states have a commercial wine industry, with California being by far the largest producing state with over 85% of the country's total, followed by Washington, New York, and Oregon.

 

There are more than 10,000 wineries in the U.S., and vinifera grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, and Zinfandel are among the most popular. In cooler northeastern states, native grapes like Concord and French/American hybrid species such as Seyval Blanc are more prevalent.
