The charts list some of the most frequently encountered wine names from around the world, grouping wines that are similar in style. They begin with the lightest styles and go on to more
characterful or sweeter, wines.

The name given in the chart is usually what you will see on the label: in some countries the name of the region is the key to the style, while others place more emphasis on grape variety.

The numbers down the left-hand side of each chart indicate the approximate degree of alcohol-although alcohol content may vary slightly from producer.

Look for the name of a wine that you know you like: the names nearest to it may be very different in flavour, but will be similar in style. You will then be able to try a wine from an unfamiliar region, or from a higher or lower price bracket.
