Others are located in the southern province of Skåne near the Baltic Sea coast in Sweden and the "Eventyrvin" vineyard near Gvarv in Norway. Due to climate change, it is to be expected that the wine-growing areas in the northern hemisphere will expand towards the pole in the coming decades. In Europe, candidates for this are Denmark, England, the Netherlands, Poland and Sweden as well as Ukraine.
