Wineries

Wineries are the place where the grapes are grown to produce wines. Wineries are laid in two bands around the globe equidistant from the equator. These bands are suitable for the grape cultivation. In these bands grapes get enough sunlight, during the fall it will not freeze and during summer it will get roasted. When you travel straight the latitude either in north or south you can come across a large number of wineries.

The primary wine growing regions are listed below:


 
Argentina Ireland
Australia Israel
Austria Italy
Canada Japan
Chile New Zealand
Franced Portugal
Germany South Africa
Georgia Spain

All the grapes have their individual expression. Generally there is no ranking scale to weigh the wineries to the best to the worst. In reality the market forces conclude that some wines are expensive than others. Wine journalists evaluate the wineries based on their numerical scales. However the following criteria are used to judge the wineries

  • As exceptional wines are often cited by critics.
  • The most expensive grapes used to make the best wine.
  • Internationally checking the history and status.
  • Use of the strongest varieties.
