Cannabis wine catching on in California | A number of California winemakers are secretly producing wines laced with cannabis, with Cabernet
Cabernet Sauvignon: This famous red wine grape, produced everywhere from Bordeaux and California to South Africa and Australia, generally makes high-tannin, full-bodied wines with depth. The flavor of black currants is commonly associated with the wine, as is a quality of being firm and rich. Food Pairing: Think steak and red meat.

The world’s largest cork tree, Alentejo - PORTUGAL. 230+ years old, producing corks since 1820. It was 5 years old when the first English settlers arrived in Australia, and 6 years old when the French Revolution began in 1789. 1789 bottles of wine sealed with cork in that same year were fairly recently discovered in a French cellar, and both the wines and corks in good condition. Every nine years producing 1T of bark, enough cork for 100,000
Zinfandel: White zinfandel may be a hugely popular white wine, but the grape it is made from is actually red. Iconic in California winemaking, the grape also produces dark, rich, high-alcohol red wines. Food Pairing: Red zinfandel pairs well with meat dishes (stews, ribs, leg of lamb), hearty red-sauce pastas, and rich patés and terrines.
Pinot Noir: Iconic of Burgundy reds, great pinot noirs can also be found in wine-growing regions like Oregon, California, New Zealand. Lighter than cabernet sauvignon and merlot, pinot noir is generally a medium-acid, medium-tannin wine that has fruity red berry notes and a floral aroma (sometimes also have earthy qualities as well). Food Pairing: A versatile wine for food pairing, try it with natural rinded cow's milk cheeses, mild red meats, as well as grilled, roasted, or sautéed foods
