Question: Which country in the world has the most southerly vineyard for wine grapes?
Answer: There has been an ongoing contest between New Zealand and Argentina at both around 45+ degrees S. For a while Central Otago was the winner with Black Ridge (planted in 1981) but overtaken by more recent
plantings in windy Patagonia by Otronia Patagonia Extrema. With global climate change we are seeing a move to plant even further north (Lerkekasa Vineyard in Norway at 59N and Sweden & Finland) and south (Chilean Patagonia experiments at 46+S). New records are just around the corner. Stay tuned!
