Uruguay is South America's fourth largest wine producer, and has 14,000ha (35,000 acres) of vines in the south and west of the country. More than half the vineyard is planted to vinifera, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot and 56millon. Production totals eight million cases. Peru, on the other hand, produces less than 250,000 cases. Vines have been grown in the main region, south of Lima, for 400 years. The Moquega Valley near the Chilean border is another region. Most production goes into brandy, but one or two producers are working with vinifera. Colombia produces little table wine: most production is of fortified wines, vermouth or tropical fruit blends. Paraguay, Bolivia and Ecuador all produce very small amounts of low?quality wine
