The answer comes in this comprehensively revealed in the book
This report is based on a database compiled and maintained by Professor Kym Anderson, of the University of Adelaide.
Some of the information in this book
The data is collected from large number of government and non-government sources, an Herculean task.
While the latest data reported in the book is for 2010, the basic picture is probably broadly similar for most regions. The most obvious exception to this generalisation is China, where massive new plantings have taken place over the past decade, principally of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Book Depository is an online bookseller based in the UK. I have been using them for about a decade and have found them reliable and economical. They have a large range of tiles, prices are quoted in local currency and they include free shipping.
This dozen contains 2 bottles from each of six different producers in several regions. The varieties included are Alicante Bouschet, Carmenere, Lagrein, Montepulciano and Sangiovese, plus a red blend from Heathcote containing Nero d’Avola, Sangiovese, Lagrein, Schioppettino & a little Lambrusco Maestro.
You can use this space to promote your winery or wine based business.
