and Wine Facts
Welcome to the ABC of Wine.
As the name implies, we are intent on giving you as much wine information and wine facts
as possible that will help you better understand and appreciate wine.
The popularity of wine is growing rapidly throughout all parts of the world and there are a number of reasons
Firstly, in traditional wine consuming markets in the Western world there has been increasing competition
amongst growers and producers which has resulted in a reduction of the price of wine to the consumer. Even high
quality wines have become reasonably affordable as a result.
Secondly, the explosion in prosperity in Asian and Chinese markets has seen increasingly affluent societies
which have embraced wine products. In many cases the interest in wine from consumers has resulted in vine plantings
in areas which have never previously had such a crop.
Finally, the move to a globalized economy has resulted in producers being able to export their products to new
markets with an increased international awareness of wines.

history. Whether it be for business or pleasure, people are travelling overseas more often and being exposed to
different cultures and habits.
The resultant exposure to wine products has resulted in many new converts to the world's most popular
You only need to see attendees on wine tours in any part of the wine growing
world these days to notice the mix of nationalities who are thirsting for both wine knowledge and the product
Wine clubs have grown in popularity across the world as a means for wine lovers to
gain access to and try wines not readily available in their own location.
No web site dedicated to wine information and wine facts would be complete without mention of the various
ways that consumers can take advantage of the huge array of wine varieties and
styles, as well as the wine accessories, equipment and procedures
necessary to maximize wine enjoyment.
To this end, we have included reviews and recommendations of certain products that you may wish to purchase,
including our best wine club reviews. Should that occur we will possibly
receive a small commission which you can be assured we will use to expand and improve this web site.
However, to keep a balance, we also include reference to cost free items and offer a free wine ebook for you to download should you be interested in making wine at home.
We hope you will enjoy the wine information and wine facts (and more) at ABC of Wine, and come back to
To your good health.
