While the colour of the wine is an indication of the region it was cultivated in, there are ten major wine regions in the world and the most prominent lie in France, Italy and Spain. These regions produce the famed Merlot, Trebbiano and Grenache while wineries in the United States of America are responsible for Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Chardonnay is also produced in Australia whose wine market has been increasing in the past few years.
