Top 10 vineyard investments19th April, 2012 by db_staff
As of 2010 in Finland there were 40 wine producers bottling reds, whites, and roses without so much as a grape in sight.
In terms of grapes and the prospect of Finland developing into a region of vineyard investment, there are a number of factors to consider.
- There are more grape varieties available which are suited to cool climates – cold winters and short growing season. Some of varieties tolerate -35°C and even -40°C temperatures.
- Winter protection makes possible growing of sensitive vine varieties.
- Present global warming moves the boundaries of northern winegrowing to the north which makes northern winegrowers’s work much easier.
- One major stumbling block is that Finnish wine products are not taken seriously because Finland does not have an image as a wine-maker.
