The Zielona Góra area (part of Germany before WW2) was the only commercial grape-growing reigon in post-war Poland (but rather modest). In recent years there has been some talk that climate warming may make it possible to also resume grape production in the SE (former Austrian-ruled Galicja). Anyone heard anything about this? I understand many Poles grow smallish, sour grapes in back gardens and allotments and use them for
home-made wine, but not on a commercial basis.
Close to where I used to live in NL, there is a vineyard of a decent size which actually started to produce wine on a moderate scale a few years back. I sampled some of it and it wasn't even bad. And if that is pssbl in NL, which is on the same equation as PL, then it most definitively should be pssbl over there, given the fact that you can plant them there on the southside of mountains, a phenomenae we don't even have and it still grows.
