The state in South Asia with the capital Islamabad borders Iran in the southwest, Afghanistan in the west, China in the north and India in the east. In the south, Pakistan shares the coast of the Arabian Sea, a tributary of the Indian Ocean. There is practically no viticulture in this Islamic state due to the ban on alcohol. The vineyards cover about 17,000 hectares, almost exclusively producing sultanas and table grapes. In the high mountain valleys along the Silk Road, there are still many wild vines from which wine is produced in small quantities.
For my many years of work as an editor with a wine and culinary focus, I always like to inform myself about special questions at Wine lexicon. Spontaneous reading and following links often leads to exciting discoveries in the wide world of wine.Dr. Christa Hanten
