Wine Growing Regions

South Korea produces a variety of "Traditional Wines" but virtually no wine made from grapes. We could find only one Winery with its own vineyard in Yeongdong County, a county in North Chungcheong Province. This county counts for 8.5% of Korea's grape production.

Traditional Korean wines are made from wheat, rice, fruits, and Oriental medicinal ingredients such as ginseng and mushrooms.
