Are You a Fan of Minnesota, Wisconsin, or Iowa’s Most Popular Wine?
We can learn a lot of things thanks to Google trends. Based on people's Googling habits in each state, The Waycroft figured out the most popular wine in each state! I have to be honest, I'm not sure I've ever had Minnesota's most popular type of wine. I didn't even recognize the name when I saw it but my co-workers recognized it so maybe I'm just not well-versed in the wine world.
Wisconsin's Most Popular Wine
Based on Google trends, Wisconsin's favorite wine is sherry wine. I'm pretty positive I've had sherry wine before. I don't recall ever buying a bottle but I think I've tried it at wine samplings.
This is the best sherry on Total Wine's website based on customer reviews.
Iowa's Most Popular Wine
Iowa's most popular wine based on Google trends is probably a favorite for many, it's a moscato. I think a moscato is an easy wine to grab when you're going to a party and you don't know what people like. Moscatos are good, don't get me wrong, but it's one of those kinds of wines you know for a fact everyone has heard of.
Based on expert reviews, this is the best moscato at Total Wine.
Minnesota's Most Popular Wine
Finally, Minnesota's favorite wine (based on Google trends) is chianti wine. I don't remember ever hearing about chianti wine before. Like I said, maybe that's just because I'm not well-versed in the wine world. Minnesota was the only state that has chianti as our favorite wine though.
This is the best chianti at Total Wine according to expert reviews.
