In about 100 of the approximately 200 countries of the world, wine is grown or at least vines are planted for the production of table grapes, raisins, grape juice and RTK. The vast majority of the vineyards are located between 40 and 50 degrees north and 30 and 40 degrees south (the two vine belts). The criteria for the suitability of a region for viticulture are called winegrowing eligibility. See lists of the countries described in the present Wine Dictionary under Africa, Asia, Europe, New World, Tropics, South America and USA (with 41 of the 50 states as separate keywords), as well as wine production volumes.
