List of wine-producing regions


List of wine-producing regions

This list of wine-producing regions catalogues significant growing regions where vineyards are planted. Wine grapes mostly grow between the 30th and the 50th degree of latitude, in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Grapes will sometimes grow beyond this range and minor amounts of wine are made in some very unexpected places.

In 2003, the five largest producers of wine in the world were France, Spain, Italy, the United States, and Argentina (see list of wine-producing countries for a complete rank).

The greatest concentration of vineyards is found in the south of England, in the counties of Kent, Surrey, Essex, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, Devon, Cornwall and East and West Sussex.
