The ash of Mount Vesuvius creates the fertile land which makes grapes fertelized and makes the grapes grow ripe and plump for the wine that people make by using the ash. The caldera is formed in bodies of water when the Tectonic plates create movement. Mount Vesuvius has erupted many times in history. It has erupted 29 times in history. In 79 A.D it erupted.
