The United States, the fourth country among the main wine-producers in the world after France, Italy and Spain, produces wine in virtually every state. Of all of them, California is the most important vine-growing region in the country, followed by Washington, Oregon and New York.
United States' vineyards cover an area of more than 4,500 square kilometers, and the main wine -producing regions are the West Coast, the Rocky Mountains, the South West of the country, the East Coast and the region of the Great Lakes
Wine producers in the United States use three different types of vines, categorised according to their origins. The vitis vinífera species, of European origin, like Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cariñena, Garnacha, Barbera or Merlot, among the red grapes, and the Colombard, Chardonnay or Sémillon for the white grapes. The second group is that of indigenous grapes, such as Mission, Catawba or Vitis Labrusca. Finally, we can find the new varieties, produced through crosses and graftings.
