#8 Wine is about as culturally rich and diverse as a “product” can get
Wines tend to have very strong ties to the regions from which they hail. Arguably in Europe more than anywhere else, winemakers are greatly influenced by the local culture and cuisine, and tend to put special emphasis on the ability for their wines to pair with local foods. For these reasons, alongside terroir, wines tend to mirror very strongly where they come from; and once you’ve tasted just a few wines from the same region, you’ll start to recognize it in the wine.
In the same vein, it can also be stated that every bottle of wine has a story to tell, no matter where it originates from! Wine therefore represents a vast amount of International styles, and is about rich and diverse as any agricultural product can get.
