The country in the northwest South America lies between Colombia and Peru, Viticulture plays only a minor role; the vineyards cover a few hundred hectares. About 50 hectares are located on the Pacific coast and are subject to one tropical Climate. Due to the proximity to the equator, up to three grape harvests per year are possible here. More vineyards with about 200 hectares were created in the early 1980s in the mountainous Azuay, Canar, Cotopaxi, Imbabura, Loja, Pinchincha and Tungurahua at the foot of the Andes. There is a cooler climate here and only one harvest. There planted in the mid-1980s, the German Hermann Jäger from Ockenheim am Rhein (formerly President of the Rheinhessische Weinbauverbandes) vineyards at 2,700 meters above sea level. These are among the highest vineyards of the world.
