In addition to the vineyard's name, wine is generaly categorized by two different categories: its region, or where it was produced, and the type of grape it's made from. For example, the red wine Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is made with Montepulciano grapes and comes from the Abruzzo region of Italy. Napa Valley Chardonnay is made from Chardonnay grapes and comes from- you guessed it- the Napa Valley region of California.
