Swirls: Warming trends may change global wine map

In case you missed my video in this space a month or so ago on climate change and its effects on wine, I’ve expanded on it for my monthly column on Reuters, which you can read by clicking here. Dr. Greg Jones, a climatologist at Southern Oregon University sancerre rocks who studies climate and wine, raises the prospect that the wine world as we know it, at least from from a geographical standpoint, may be forced to shift in coming decades as wine producers confront warmer temperatures and are forced into cooler growing areas. Alternatively, some existing wine regions  may turn to varieties that are more suited to warmer weather. All of this has far-reaching implications, which the column explores.
