France has one of the oldest systems and strictest laws concerning winemaking and production. French appellation rules usually restrict wines from each region to a small number of allowed grape varieties. This is very different from California where one can find almost any kind of grape growing throughout the state. In France, most grapes are associated with a certain region, such as the Cabernet sauvignon in Bordeaux and Chardonnay in Burgundy. Therefore, French wines have more of a regional than a national identity. Another difference between French and California wine is that most California wines are made from a single grape, while most French wines are blended from the several grape varieties allowed in a region.
