Starting your adventure into French wine reveals a nearly endless selection of new wines to try.
For starters, there are over 200 indigenous wine varieties–from the well-known Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon to very rare grapes like Prunelard and Savagnin.
Moreover, there are 307 official wine label names (called AOP or Appellation d’Origine Protégée). Each designation can allow several different types of wine (red, rosé, sparkling, etc.).
