    Hi. This is a great idea, but it would be more helpful if you also included the primary grape varieties of each region.

    Also, you left out Barolo, the greatest of all Italian wines. Bourgogne can also be white. Some are listed individually, but Bourgogne (Burgundy) produces both.

    Sancerre also produces excellent red and rose, though it is known more for its whites.

    Spain is the largest wine producer in the world. It’s not listed at all.

    You include Meurseault but Montrachet is a vineyard. The specific communes are are Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet.

    On my computer at least the last column is too narrow and the longer descriptions (White-Sweet), etc. is cut off.

    There are quite a few other omissions, such as Champagne and several of the communes of Bordeaux. If you only wanted to include communes that had first growths, where is Pessac-Leognan?

    If you chose to limit your regions for space or other reasons, then an explanation would be helpful.

    Thanks.

      Hi Larry,

      Thank you for your comments, all of which I agree with. This is all a work in progress. Barolo is now included as well. Thanks again and stay tuned for more to come.
