Favourable weather conditions have led to a fantastic year for Canadian winemakers, with near-perfect vintages in British Columbia and Ontario.
South of the border, many wineries have enjoyed similar success.
September wildfires in Washington state posed a threat to this year's harvest, but so far, quality control tests have been contaminant-free.
In Europe, it's a different story.
Hail storms in Burgundy, France have destroyed 80% of the vines.
Bad weather has also wreaked havoc in Portugal, where some regions have seen 40% of the crops ruined.
