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.

Three Sheets is a program that visits various world locations to drink. 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.
