Vietnam Wine Country
Wine production is relatively young in Vietnam, as it started at the beginning of the 21st century, but its growth has been firmly increasing. Even though the country’s high percentage of humidity doesn’t help the growing of grapes, there are a few terroirs and environments favorable for planting vines.
The areas with a more temperate climate are the Gulf of Tonkin, Mekong, the Valley of the Red Rivers, Da Lat, the Central Highland region, and the coastal plain near Phan Rang-Tháp Chàm. Before undergoing a steady growth between the 20th and the 21st centuries, the first wine-growing experiment was done by French colonists in the area around the Ba Vì mountain range, not far from the city of Hanoi.
Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon are the main wine varieties produced in Vietnamese wineries.
