United States

American wine has been produced for over 300 years.  Today, wine production is performed in all fifty states, with California leading the way in wine production followed by Washington State, Oregon and New York.  The United States is the fourth largest wine producing country in the world after France, Italy, and Spain.  The production in the US State of California alone is more than double of the production of the entire country of Australia.

The North American continent is home to several native species of grape, including Vitis labrusca, Vitis riparia, Vitis rotundifolia, Vitis vulpina, and Vitis amurensis, but it was the introduction of the European Vitis vinifera by European settlers that led to the growth of the wine making industry.  With more than 1,100,000 acres (4,500 km2) under vine, the US is the fifth most planted country in the world after France, Italy, Spain and Turkey.

California is a U.S. state on the West Coast of the United States, along the Pacific Ocean. It is bordered by Oregon to the north, Nevada to the east, Arizona to the southeast, and to the south by Mexico.
Oregon has several different growing regions within the state's borders which are well-suited to the cultivation of grapes; additional regions straddle the border between Oregon and the states of Washington and Idaho.
Virginia wine refers to wine made from grapes grown in the U.S. state of Virginia. Wine has been produced in the area since the early days of European colonization in the 17th century.
Washington State is one of the United States largest and best wine producing regions. The central area of Washington State provides the climate and terrior that is perfect for growing grapes and making wine.
