I am working on a project and I need to determine the most popular wine varietals.

I can get about 8 - 10. I have listed the "for sures" below but I need some input on the others. I am not interested in favorites, but what is most popular in the states. Or, if I am forgetting anything. I opted to leave out dessert wines like port/moscato.

Help!!

FOR SURES

  1. Pinot Noir
  2. Merlot
  3. Chardonnay
  4. Cabernet Sauvignon
  5. Rosé
  6. Pinot Grigio

OTHER POSSIBILITIES

  1. Prosecco (get some bubbly in there??)
  2. Sauvignon Blanc
  3. Shiraz or Syrah
  4. Chianti
  5. Riesling
  6. Fumé Blanc
  7. Malbec
  8. Sangiovese
  9. Tempranillo
  10. Zinfandel
  11. Cabernet Franc
  12. Barbera
  13. Viognier

We all know Ramona's favorite...
