The state in South Asia emerged in 1947 from the predominantly Muslim parts of British India. Starting in the west, it borders clockwise on Iran
. In this Islamic state there is practically no viticulture due to the ban on alcohol
. In 2012, the area under vines covered 17,000 hectares with an upward trend, of which almost exclusively raisins
and table grapes
were produced. In the high mountain valleys along the Silk Road there are still many wild vines
, of which even small quantities of wine are produced.
