dammit! missed argentina, brazil, chile. running out of time, i looked at the list and started randomly guessing european countries. since i love tennis, as you know if you know my user name, i correctly guessed serbia: djokovic and ukraine(my favorite player): dolgopolov. go 9 year old!

I got 20/20. I guessed Canada, too, but even though their land area is huge their population is not that big, and their latitude is a bit too far north to be optimal for wine production. I was more surprised that Mexico didn't make the list. Thought maybe India would be on there as well.

India can't be there. They do not drink alcohol...

Depends where you are in India. A place like Punjab had lots of drinkers but nobody is drinking wine.

Sep 27, 2014
Plenty of Indians drink alcohol, and enough drink wine, but even if they didn't I just thought that such a huge and populous country with plenty of areas suitable for wine cultivation... even if they only used a fraction of that for the sake of export.. could should up on the list. Apparently I was wrong.

I guessed Canada but that's because I live in Canada, and right next to wine country. (the okanagan.) So at the liquor store there are a lot of Canadian wines, but it's pretty much the only section that can grow wine. It feels a lot bigger when you're close to it.

In Canada, Southern Ontario and the Okanagan in BC have fantastic wine productions. A lot of ice wine comes out of the Niagara region of Ontario

India produced a lot of wine in colonial times, but following independence the government offered payments to vineyard owners to use their land for other purposes. They do produce a lot of alcohol though, for instance with rum India is both the worlds largest producer and consumer (that's total consumption, they're nowhere near the top when measured per capita.) I've seen India listed as high as 4th in the world for total alcohol production, however there aren't any definitive figures for that and estimates tend to vary wildly.

There are over 100 wineries in the Niagara region. Many are small, apparently not enough for Canada to crack the list.

I got 20/20 only by guessing as well. But I live in Europe, so countries like Serbia and Ukraine came to mind easily, just by thinking of different countries where the climate would be suitable for wine production.

Sep 27, 2014
I didn't get (actually eliminated) several of the countries because I have never seen/heard of wines from there and I drink wine from areas all over the world. I'm guessing that quality has not matched quantity yet in many of those regions.

Though they grow a lot of wine in Israel, it is a tiny country. It's a lot more surprising to me that Georgia doesn't make it. I thought for sure they would at least edge out Hungary or Serbia.
