Wine growing regions global climate analysis

We depict the main features of five viticulture agroclimatic indices for 626 wine growing regions within 41 countries. The indices are calculated using the WorldClim 30 sec arc (1 km) resolution database, updated for the period 2000-2014 using CRU3.2 database. The spatial limits of each region are given by the Vineyard Geodatabase, an electronic map elaborated from various sources (Atlases, wine region maps, land cover database…).
