A growth industry!!!!

I was eager to learn more, especially about wines from Peru, Brazil and Uruguay. (I am working on WSET4 - Diploma) and always eager to learn more about regions with rapidly evolving wine cultures. I wished for more detail on each of the lessons. I enjoyed hearing the overview of each region, but this only made me want to experience a deeper dive.
