Winery in Aruba

When I saw this it was very surprising. Vitis Vinifera grapes were being grown on the Carribean island of Aruba located just north of the Equator. I have read about grapes being grown in more northern climates but never so close to the hottest part of the planet. It almost gives you hope that through human innovation, places like Napa might still be able to grow grapes in 50 years when experts say climate change will make grape growing not viable. The video is cut off short but it is long enough to see how this works.
