Russia is a country located in Northern Asia. It is the largest country in the world, almost twice as large as the second largest country, Canada. Moscow is the capital.
With the enormous size comes a wide range of climates ranging from frigid sub-arctic in Siberia to a humid subtropical climate with warm summers and mild winters in the Sochi area, host of the 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
The main wine grape growing regions of Russia are located in the south between the Black and Caspian Seas.
