Global Diagram of Wine

Travel around the world, one click at a time, learning along the way. The Global Diagram of Wine, by Greg Van Wagner, is an interactive mapping tool designed to share key information about vineyards, regions, grapes, etc.

Greg Van Wagner

“The Global Diagram of Wine was born out of the concept that everything in the world of wine, spirits, sake, and beer has an associated physical location. La Tache is a place, just like Napa, just like Pinhel. Wineries and distilleries have street addresses you can navigate to, both on-screen and in a car. The Diagram is built as a 3D map of the wine and spirits world, whether you want an overview of an entire country or a detailed vineyard map down to the meter. Each of the pins has pop-up technical information on the associated area. This data delves into detail on the varietals, bottlings, climate, vintages, production techniques, terms, soils, history, laws, parcel connections, producer summaries, and other facets that create the final product in your glass. You control where you go and what you learn. In lieu of traveling to each region in person, we hope that this provides the next-best experience.”
