Greater Baku

Geography Baku is the capital of the Republic of Azerbaijan. The city is situated on the western coast of the Caspian Sea, on the southern part of the Absheron Peninsula. Though separate administrative units, the 32 towns of Absheron have always been inseparable from the capital culturally, economically and spatially. Therefore, the whole Absheron peninsula is called Greater Baku.

Winemaking

The Absheron is a center of traditional viticulture. Common here, ' trailing vineyards are protected from many diseases due to khazri, a wind flowing from the Caspian Sea. There are more than 50 grape varieties grown on the Absheron, mostly sugary sorts like shani.

The Grape Harvest Festival is held annually in Icherisheher where the Azerbaijani winegrowers and winemakers demonstrate the best samples of their products.
