In many respects it took much of the 20th century for the wine world to recover from the crisis of the late 19th. After World War 1, wine consumption in Europe rose to new heights, but the wine itself, drawn from the southern vineyards and from North Africa, was very poor. Even great wines - from Bordeaux, Burgundy, the Rhein and Mosel -sold for low prices: their once prosperous drinkers had been hit by wars and slumps. The brightest spots were the New World vineyards of western USA, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand, where immigrants from Europe's wine lands developed virgin soil in benign climates.
