When population bumps into vineyards

This Vina Cousino Macul vineyard in Chile's Maipo Valley was once many kilometers outside of Santiago. Now the city surrounds the vines and the winery. In fact, Vina Cousino Macul is actually developing some former vineyard land into housing and retail and purchasing new land much further out.

Nothing is done in a small way in China. By the dozens, these large 30-story apartments are build like a flood right to the very edge of this Changyu-Castel (a Chinese-French joint venture) vineyard on the outskirts of Yantai, Shandong Province.
