Grapes can be grown easily in the tropics. It's a matter of tricking
the vines into dormancy. Done right, it's possible to get two or even
three crops a year. The details are in The Grape Grower.

I was surprised that on this episode they visited a vinyard in the
Tuamotu group that has a "coral terroir" due to the atoll soil. You can
watch it free on Hulu. The bit on the vineyard comes very early in the
program. I've never heard of tropical wines.
