The kingdom in the Himalayas in South Asia with its capital Thimphu lies east of Nepal between China and India. In the early 1990s, with the support of the Australian company Taltarni, a vineyard was established near Paro, close to Thimphu, at 2,300 metres above sea level. It is planted with the white wine varieties Altesse, Chardonnay, Mondeuse Blanche, Pinot Blanc and Riesling, as well as the red wine varieties Gamay and Pinot Noir.
