Polish wine goes a long way back, but only recently it has started to appear outside its borders.
In the last 20 years, thanks to viticulture in Poland embracing modern wine production methods and the adoption of an EU style wine regulation, the quality of Polish wine has considerably increased. The majority of wineries are located in the south and east of the country, where the temperature is warmer and drier, the north is still relatively cold for grape growing but due to climate change, not only the first northern wineries have appeared but the total wine production has increased substantially.
Most of the grapes grown are native to Poland, able to resist the cold Polish winter, but more and more international grapes are being planted, thanks to climate change and warmer temperature across the country. Polish wine is still at its infancy but it is slowly reaching more and more consumers across the world.
