Wine-growing countries

Around 100 of the just over 200 countries in the world either grow grapes or at least plant vines for the production of table grapes , sultanas, grape juice and RCGM (rectified grape must concentrate). The vast majority of vineyards are located between 40 and 50 degrees north and 30 and 40 degrees south (the two vineyard belts). The criteria for the suitability of a region for viticulture are known as viticultural suitability.

Continents and geographical areas

Country lists are available under Africa, America, Equator, Asia, Europe, European Union, New World, Oceania, South America and Tropics, as well as a table with all countries under wine production volumes (vineyard areas and wine volumes).

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
