    You are missing the extreme slopes of Ribeira Sacra in Galicia, Spain.

  2. Zane Katsikis says:

    How about the deep volcanic ash dust of Santorini, Greece? These ‘soils’ make one of world’s finest white wines from the Asyrtico variety-grown on Santorini for at least 2500 years.

  3. Mike says:

    What about the basalt vineyards on Pico island in the Azores?

  5. Colin Smith says:
