Candidates for the southernmost cultivated vines on the southern vine belt of the earth are vineyards in Argentina (Tierra del Fuego), Chile(Bío-Bío) or New Zealand (South Island). The "Black Ridge" estate in Alexandra between Queenstown and Dunedin on New Zealand's South Island claims to be the southernmost vineyard in the world. But a little further south there is another winery called "Dry Gully's Vineyards". The wine-growing region is Central Otago and is located at 45 degrees latitude. Due to climate change, it is to be expected that the wine-growing regions will partly shift; candidates are the countries Australia, Chile and New Zealand. However, the areas in the northern hemisphere are likely to be more affected.
