Climate Change Could Change Your Wine-Drinking Habits (Nature)

Keeping an eye on climate is now part of viticulture, Nature reports, as grape growers wonder if they’ll be able to cultivate the same grapes in the years to come.

However, climate change could turn some non-traditional wine regions into wine producing ones. England, for instance, now has 419 vineyards and 124 wineries. Germany supposedly is producing tastier wines, too, because the warmer temperatures are decreasing the acidity of its wines. “Will parched Europeans, Australians, Americans and Chileans be drinking Great Wall Wine from Hebei a decade down the pike? The warming wine world is watching with interest,” Nature concludes.
