Wine has become such a universal interest that I’m no longer surprised when I hear of yet another country’s first commercial vineyard or winery. In fact, a common phenomenon in more exotic locations for wine production is for someone to plant a few vines, build a cellar door (often without much of a cellar) and set up shop selling wine labelled as though it were local, but which depends heavily on bulk imports from wherever is cheapest at the time (often Chile, sometimes Spain or Italy).
