Would Hotter Summers Hurt Wine Quality?

Stanford scientists take a stab at what could happen by 2040

Posted: July 13, 2011  By Harvey Steiman

It's a standing joke, though a somewhat nervous one, among winegrowers when the subject of global climate change comes up. "Well, I guess they'll be growing Cabernet in Burgundy," someone is sure to remark, "because it will be too hot to grow Pinot Noir there anymore."
