With the celebration of our Independence right around the corner, we are all set to celebrate. This is after all one of the great parties of the year for of us. Historically it was fun and easy to recommend “America’s Indigenous Grape” aka Zinfandel as the go to wine for Fourth of July celebrations, but that ultimately meant recommending a wine from California that went well with burgers and ribs. Today’s Fourth of July celebrations tend to include a more varied menu these days and recommending wines only from California harkens back to a time when that’s pretty much all we had.
Today wine is produced in every state, and while we all don’t have access to each and every wine there is enough variety out there to allow for some wider ranging selections. It wasn’t that long ago that American wine meant wine from California’s north coast, and while that region will remain symbolically important, we are fast approaching a time when it might not be the first region to spring to mind when one asks about American wine. With this in mind, and just in time for a most symbolic celebration, let’s take a look at the wines that might spring to mind, the wines destined to become America’s iconic wines.
