What better way to spend your weekend than going to a Wine School Hong Kong and taking a WSET Course Hong Kong? Below are examples of the interesting things you can learn about wine.
The best wine grapes are chosen for their ability to produce large, sweet berries with thick skins. The fruit contains high sugar content, making it easy to extract the juice from the fruit. Grapes also have thick skins that protect them from insects and diseases.
The primary grape varieties grown in California include: Pinot noir (also known as Pinot or Chardonnay), Sauvignon blanc, Syrah Zinfandel, Cabernet sauvignon, Merlot Riesling, etc. There are also lesser-known grapes such as the Catawba, Fiano di Avellino, and Flame Muscat. The most common types of grapes grown in California are red and white ones.
Grape growing regions in California: California has over 70,000 acres of vineyards. Most of the wine production is centered around the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, but other regions such as the Central Coast, Lake County and Mendocino have a strong wine industry. In fact, over 75% of California’s wine comes from this small area. This area produces about 60% of all wine in the United States, and is home to many of California’s famous wineries. The Central Valley, located between the San Francisco Bay Area and the Sacramento Valley, is one of the most productive agricultural areas in the world.
