Louisiana

The state with the capital Baton Rouge (and the port city New Orleans) is located in the south of the USA on the Gulf of Mexico, bordered by the states of Mississippi in the east, Texas in the west and Arkansas in the north. Louisiana was explored from 1539 by the Spanish and from 1681 by the French. Today the French-Spanish cultural tradition is still noticeable. Originally it extended over the entire Mississippi region far into the north and formed together with Canada the colony New France. The only AVA is Mississippi Delta, which shares Louisiana with Mississippi and Tennessee. It cultivates American vines of the species Vitis aestivalis and Vitis lincecumii, hybrids such as Blanc Du Bois, Vidal Blanc and Villard Blanc, as well as the European varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Syrah. The production facilities are located in the south, these are Casa de Sue Winery, Feliciana Cellars Winery, Pontchartrain Vineyards and St. Amant Winery.
