The former USSR republic and since 1991 independent state with the capital Bishkek is located in Central Asia. It borders Kazakhstan to the north, China to the southeast, Tajikistan to the south and Uzbekistan to the west. Various names are used, the official German-language country name is Kyrgyzstan. However, the name Kyrgyzstan and the name Kyrgyzstan, which was common during the Soviet era, are also widely used. The wine-growing areas are located in the valleys of Talas and Chüi in the northwest, in the Issyk-Kul depression at an altitude of up to 1,800 metres in the east, and in the south of the country. The climate is largely continental. Artificial irrigation is required almost everywhere. The vineyards cover about 6,000 hectares, the annual wine production amounts to 15,000 hectolitres.
I have great respect for the scope and quality of the wein.plus encyclopaedia. It is a unique place to go for crisp, sound information on terms from the world of wine.Dr. Edgar Müller
