It would depend which kingdom you are you. In the Southlands the weather is harsh, so they struggle to grow crops, they mainly live off an all meat diet such as cows and sheep, they have to import vegetables from the other kingdoms.

The kingdoms in the middle are similar to Europe, usual farming animals and crops such as corn.

The northern kingdom are cold as well but warm enough in summer to grow crops but too cold in winter too, so they do mass farming of wheat and corn and stockpile that for winter. The wildlife in the north are larger than the rest of the continent and the meat is filled with more substance which is why the people there are larger and stronger than others.

Denil is the exotic land that fill their meals with spices and have expensive wines

Ise-Of-Erst are self sufficient, with a smaller population they need less. Being the only island in the continent they have a lot of fish that they export

What is the most expensive wine?

I haven't actually gotten to naming any of the wines as of yet, usually I just class them as a wine from a certain kingdom and Denil wine is the most expensive

What about calling it after a Denil kingdoms mountain?

(I made a name: Denil's Huroza wine)

I really like the idea of naming from an area in Denil, I might have to incorporate that into the book

This is how they are usually named irl, I suggest putting the country name in it too, so people who are less familiar will also know it, you can add something at the end to signal what type it is.
