Wineries by Country - The Wine Regions of the World
It is fascinating to look at a map of the world and see where most wineries are located. They are laid out in two bands around the globe, equidistant from the equator. This is the perfect band of area for the grapes to get enough sunlight, not freeze in the fall, not roast in the summer. On the map below, the main wine regions are shown in green. If you could drive in a straight line around this latitude either in the north or south, imagine the wineries you would encounter!
