ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views on the variety of wines available in the state of California. The people who make wines in the state are those who open a winery as a status symbol and the established winemakers purchase wine from them. The popular wines are Chardonnays and Cabernets, which are taken to complement food. California producers are now making Chardonnays from four different vineyards to provide elegance to their wines. There is confusion over wines as one producer will frequently make several editions of a certain wine varying in quality, taste, and price.
