Located near the ancient city of Luxor, Egypt’s Sahara Vineyards is a contender for one of the most inhospitable vineyards in the world. The 600-acre vineyard, overseen by Karim Hwaidak, is subject to extreme changes in temperature from day to night, a complete lack of rainfall and desert sand absent of nutrients.

Despite this, it cultivates 30 different grape varieties, including Viognier, Chenin Blanc, Grenache Noir. The team fertilises the sand with 30 tons of compost per acre and uses drip irrigation to control the vines’ growth.
