The highest vineyard in the world is in Argentina.

Answer: True.

Although wine is now made in the Himalayas in China and more vineyards there in the future could change this answer, currently, the highest vineyard in the world is in Argentina. Bodega Colomé at 10,200 feet in altitude (3,111 meters) is in the northern part of that country’s Calchaqui Valley. At that altitude, luminosity is intense and the grapes tend to develop thicker skins, although the direct impact on flavor is not known.
