In 1992 my wife and I planted some 2000 vines of two different Pinot Noir-crossings here in the county of Vestfold in Norway. This vineyard was then the world's northernmost - at 60 degrees North. From their vantage point on the
slopes overlooking the Oslo fjord, the vines thrive in a moraine soil containing deep
layers of sand and gravel, made by the glaciers from the Ice Age.
