India

Grapes have been cultivated in India since ancient times, and certainly before colonisation. The spread of the Phylloxera louse and then prohibition at the end if British rule led to a decline in wine making but thanks to an increasingly wealthy middle class the country is seeing a revival. The Nashik region produces good quality wines from grapes grown at high altitude. European varieties are yielding the best results with Shiraz, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc doing particularly well.
