Who knew that the bottles of wine, with labels noting Texas, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Michigan, Idaho and more, would provoke such excitement and thought-provoking conversation? Appellation America is on a roll. The organization has long been eager to help wine lovers discover the variety of great wines that are being made around the country, and it has been holding a number of small tastings to explore just what is being produced in the U.S.

Most recently, the organization gathered a group from the Napa Valley wine trade to taste a variety of current white wines. The tasters included winemakers, sommeliers, barrel makers and journalists, but they had one thing in common in addition to wine that night: a curiosity about the diversity of American-made wines. Viognier from Virginia, pinot blanc from Michigan, gruner veltliner from Pennsylvania, roussanne from Texas, and riesling from Idaho were just some of the wines forming this collection.
