포도 원산지

  The grapes used to make Korea's iconic fruit wine are predominantly sourced from the Byeollae-ri region in the Gyeonggi Province. The area is renowned for its mild, warm climate and its exceptionally good soil drainage, resulting in a perfect environment for the wine grape cultivation.
  
  Compared to other regions in Korea, the Byeollae-ri area is considered to have the most suitable conditions for growing the highest-quality wine grapes. The local climate varies by season, but it is usually dry and windy during the harvest period - late August to early October. This makes the area exceptionally ideal for drying and curing grape varieties that are better suited to ripen in dry conditions.
  
  The most popular and commonly used grapes for Korean wine production include the famous Jeju Island cluster grapes, as well as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Semillon and Chardonnay wines. Many of the local winemakers also use Muscat or other domestically grown varieties in their wine making.
  
  The reputation of Byeollae-ri grapes is further enhanced by its unique terroir, which is laced with quartz and mineral veins from nearby thermophilic hills. According to local winemakers, the emitted earthy aroma enhances the basic characters of the wines, resulting in a unique and balanced flavour.
  
  The weather in the Gyeonggi Province is also known to have a direct effect on the development of grapes, as the region often experiences heavy rain during the summer months. This ensures that the grapes reach the ripeness they need to produce the best quality of wine.
  
  Finally, the soil in Byeollae-ri is a particularly fertile one that is well-suited for the growth of wine grapes. Similarly to other regions, the terrain is made up of a mix of clay, sand, and gravel. This gives the grapes a good amount of time to ripen and grow, resulting in wines that have a full body, smooth texture, and well-balanced taste.
