Is there Icelandic wine?

Is there Icelandic wine?

The classic Icelandic spirit is Brennivin (burnt wine) – a snaps with a strong caraway / fennel taste. It's marketed in a distinctly unappealing green bottle with an ugly black and white label.

Do grapes grow in Iceland?

Vegetables, flowers and fodder crops Even bananas and grapes can be grown in this way—but not usually on a commercial scale. Fodder crops are also important: this includes grass (which in Iceland is exceptionally nutritious as a result of the long periods of daylight in the short, cool summers), rye and barley.
