Today, more than 90% of the total USA wine production comes from California. This area has an ideal climate on the coast and enjoys a lot of sun. The growing season is long, so the grapes ripen slowly and develop a fruity taste. About 60% is planted with blue grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Zinfandel. 40% with white grapes such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
