Wines from the USA now play a major role in the UK with their quality and potential driving them forward. California with the Napa, Russian River and Sonoma Valley have led the way, but look out for others like Washington, Oregon, and Virginia and many more. The grape classics are all familiar with the exception of the Zinfandel - from the Italian Primitivo. Over the years many of them have successfully invested and challenged the great legends of France and elsewhere. A serious area worth trying.
