OH, ok, But not really champagne when referred to as US wines has nothing to do with location, but wiht style. Like in Champagne, it is more about blending and keeping a "house" style. While we are seeing more single vineyards wines, or single town wines I should say, like Bouzy etc. it is about the blend.
