highest vineyard

The vine can still thrive at very high altitudes. The highest vineyards in the world are located at an incredible 3,111 metres above sea level. However, the examples given below are absolute exceptions. The ideal conditions for viticulture in terms of altitude and latitude are found in the so-called vine belts. The environmental conditions such as soil type, climate and weather are described under the keywords vine and viticultural suitability. In any case, high-altitude wine-growing areas are hardly affected by climate change.
