Russia

Russian domestic wine production consists of around 70 wine producers and 70,000 hectares of vines, though only 40% of Russian wine is produced from Russian grapes. Domestic wines are improving in quality and reputation, and the three main wine growing regions are in the South, but France, Italy and Spain hold a strong presence in the wine market. In 2015, the Russian government attempted to harness local production by implementing minimum wine prices.
