Perhaps you’re familiar with the rich Cabernet Sauvignon of California’s Napa Valley, the crisp Sauvignon Blanc of New Zealand, or the mouth-watering Malbec from Argentina. Are you ready to learn what other parts of the world have stunning wines to offer? Here are some of the many wine regions you should get to know in 2022.

Happy New Year!

Anderson Valley (California, USA)

The Anderson Valley AVA is located 100 miles from San Francisco in Northern California’s Mendocino County. Pinot Noir put this region on the map: Pinot grapes thrive in the region’s warm days (summer temperatures easily reach the 100s) and cool nights (thanks to the region’s proximity to the Pacific Ocean). California Wine Advisors deemed Anderson Valley “one of the lesser-known gems of California” for good reason: the textured, velvety Pinot Noir from this region is second to none.

This 100% Pinot Noir hails from a tiny, one-acre Frattey Shams Vineyard in the Anderson Valley. Owner Ron Verdier organically farms all grapes, including Pinot Noir vines which come from the prestigious Dijon clone 115. Just 191 cases were made of this wine, which was fermented in open top French oak barrels.
