The former USSR republic and now an independent state in Central Asia borders Kazakhstan to the north, China to the southeast, Tajikistan to the south and Uzbekistan to the west. Different names are used, the official German-speaking country name is Kyrgyzstan. However, the name Kyrgyzstan and the name Kyrgyzstan, which was common in Soviet times, are also common. The wine-growing areas are located in the valleys of Talas and Tschüi in the northwest, in the Issyk-Kul depression up to 1,800 meters above sea level in the east, and in the south of the country. The climate is largely continental. Almost everywhere artificial irrigation is necessary. In 2012, 13,000 hectolitres of wine were produced from 6,000 hectares of vineyards

The local varieties Bayanshira, Budeshuri Tsiteli, Kuldzhinskii, Mairam, Rkatsiteli and Saperavi are cultivated, as well as the international varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Muscat Blanc, Muscat d'Hamburg, Pinot Noir and Riesling. However, the majority of the area produces table grapes and raisins from mainly Cinsaut and Madeleine Angevine. In 1999, the Italian Antinori family planted eight hectares of vineyards north of Lake Issyk-Kul with Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Noir in order to demonstrate the advantages of a settled, long-term agriculture to the predominantly nomadic population. The first vintage was 2002.
