Calistoga AVA
The Calistoga AVA
Calistoga AVA
is an American Viticultural Area
American Viticultural Area
located in the northern portion of California's Napa Valley AVA. The appellation is distinguished by its volcanic soil,[3] high temperatures up to 100 °F (38 °C) during the day, and cool nights during the growing season due to breezes from the Russian River, causing the highest diurnal temperature variation in the Napa Valley—up to 50 °F (28 °C).[4]Contents1 Geography and Climate 2 History2.1 Controversy3 See also 4 ReferencesGeography and Climate[edit] Despite sharing a name, the Calistoga AVA

Cabernet Franc
Cabernet Franc
Cabernet Franc
is one of the major black grape varieties worldwide. It is principally grown for blending with Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon
and Merlot in the Bordeaux style, but can also be vinified alone, as in the Loire's Chinon. In addition to being used in blends and produced as a varietal in Canada and the United States, it is sometimes made into ice wine in those regions. Cabernet Franc
Cabernet Franc
is lighter than Cabernet Sauvignon,[1] making a bright pale red wine[2] that contributes finesse and lends a peppery perfume to blends with more robust grapes. Depending on the growing region and style of wine, additional aromas can include tobacco, raspberry, bell pepper, cassis, and violets. Records of Cabernet Franc
Cabernet Franc
in Bordeaux go back to the end of the 18th century, although it was planted in Loire long before that time

Appellation
An appellation is a legally defined and protected geographical indication used to identify where the grapes for a wine were grown; other types of food often have appellations as well. Restrictions other than geographical boundaries, such as what grapes may be grown, maximum grape yields, alcohol level, and other quality factors, may also apply before an appellation name may legally appear on a wine bottle label. The rules that govern appellations are dependent on the country in which the wine was produced.Contents1 History 2 Europe2.1 France 2.2 Germany 2.3 Hungary 2.4 Italy 2.5 Portugal 2.6 Spain3 North America3.1 Canada 3.2 United States4 List of appellations 5 See also 6 Notes and references 7 External linksHistory[edit] The tradition of wine appellation is very old.

List Of Vineyard Soil Types
The soil composition of vineyards is one of the most important viticultural considerations when planting grape vines. The soil supports the root structure of the vine and influences the drainage levels and amount of minerals and nutrients that the vine is exposed to. The ideal soil condition for a vine is a layer of thin topsoil and subsoil that sufficiently retains water but also has good drainage so that the roots do not become overly saturated. The ability of the soil to retain heat and/or reflect it back up to the vine is also an important consideration that affects the ripening of the grapes.[1] There are several minerals that are vital to the health of vines that all good vineyard soils have

Volcanic
A volcano is a rupture in the crust of a planetary-mass object, such as Earth, that allows hot lava, volcanic ash, and gases to escape from a magma chamber below the surface. Earth's volcanoes occur because its crust is broken into 17 major, rigid tectonic plates that float on a hotter, softer layer in its mantle.[1] Therefore, on Earth, volcanoes are generally found where tectonic plates are diverging or converging, and most are found underwater. For example, a mid-oceanic ridge, such as the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, has volcanoes caused by divergent tectonic plates whereas the Pacific Ring of Fire

Wine Law
Wine
Wine
laws are legislation regulating various aspects of production and sales of wine. The purpose of wine laws includes combating wine fraud, by means of regulated protected designations of origin, labelling practices and classification of wine, as well as regulating allowed additives and procedures in winemaking and viticulture.[1] Legislation affecting all kinds of alcohol beverages, such as the legal drinking age and licensing practices related to distribution and sales, are usually not considered wine laws.
