Although less than eight degrees south of the equator, Tanzania produces wine from two vintages a year (see tropical viticulture). international varieties are planted, notably around the city of Dodoma. German settlers planted vines just south of Mount Kilimanjaro in the 1930s and an ambitious vine nursery was established by another German in the 1980s.
