Yeongdong in southern Chungcheongbuk-do Province is the largest producer of grapes in Korea. YeongdongGrape is known for its sweet, fresh flavor and for having a great, sunlight-rich climate and stark temperature contrasts between day and night. Every year, in celebration of its top crop, Yeongdong hosts a festival where visitors pick grapes in a vineyard or fish them out of a pool, followed by using them to make different types of food, such as wine, chocolate, dry persimmon, and more, and simply enjoy the beautiful scenery of Yeongdong Town all the while. It is a perfect opportunity to experience grapes with all five senses and take some home at affordable prices.
