ABSTRACT
The article presents information on emerging wine regions. In Eastern Europe, changing political conditions and stability in Hungary, Bulgaria, Rumania and Slovenia have induced some producers to focus on quality rather than quantity. In Greece, white wines are still successful than reds. Taking its cue from Chile's phenomenal success, Uruguay is also improving its vineyards and vinification techniques. Mexico's proximity and growing conditions to California have attracted interest and investment from the U.S.
