Which climate is the most suitable for cultivation of grape?
Grapes thrive in hot, dryweather, which helps develop high sugar content in the fruits. The vast majority of theworld's wine producing regions arefound between the temperature latitudes of30° and 50° in each hemisphere.Within these bands, the annual mean temperaturesare between 10 and 20 °C (50 and 68 °F). The presence of large bodies of water and mountain ranges canhave positive effects on the climate and vines. Nearby lakes and rivers can serve as protection for drastic temperature drops at night by releasingthe heat that the water has stored during the day to warm the vines.
