The Jordan wine estate in Stellenbosch is one of the top wine estates in. .
The Jordan wine estate in Stellenbosch is one of the top wine estates in South Africa and boasts world-class wines specializing in classic varieties. Gary’s parents, Ted and Sheelagh, bought the 164 hectare Stellenbosch property in 1982, and embarked on an extensive replanting programme, specialising in classic varieties suited to the different soils and slopes. Unique by nature’s design, the Jordan slopes face North, South, East and West, with vineyards lying at differing altitudes from 160 to 410 meters above sea level.
The History of American wine began when the first Europeans explored parts of North America, which they called Vinland because of the profusion of grape vines found there. However, settlers would later discover that the wine made from the various native grapes, had flavors which were unfamiliar and which they did not like. This led to repeated efforts to grow familiar Vitis vinifera varieties.
Second only to California in production, the Pacific Northwest is the largest wine region in North America, home to more than 1,000 wineries. What was once a young wine-growing area with a reputation for eccentricity is today recognized as a dynamic region producing world-class wines, with a focus on ecologically sound practices. This definitive volume profiles the wines, the people who make them, and the wine countries of Washington, Oregon, British Columbia, and Idaho. It will enable wine lovers everywhere to plan their touring, select their wines, and explore and discover the riches of the Northwest's wine country.

My Northwest wine preference is rooted in the realities of how wines are .
My Northwest wine preference is rooted in the realities of how wines are grown and made here. The region’s geography, geology, and climate combine with the visions and actions of dedicated winegrowers and winemakers to create a regional wine identity that is truly distinctive. Since the Pacific Northwest has less than half the number of wineries and its geography doesn’t always conform to the California stereotype of wine country, many people haven’t made the effort to get to know the region’s wines. I wrote this book for wine-curious consumers who want to understand what makes the Pacific Northwest one of the most exciting wine regions in the world.
