Today I am looking at the wines from some of the most extreme vineyards in the world. I am starting off with the most dangerous and will be covering the highest vineyards, the most northern and southern, the steepest, the smallest, and the oldest vines. I will let you know if these vineyards are making wines that are commercially available, and their prices. Plus we will look at the following grapes in more detail: Torrontes, Riesling, Chasselas, and Petite Arvine. I also squeeze in a little about the lesser-known region of Valais, and why an old vine can produce better fruit. Enjoy!
