Is wine manufacturing being affected by global warming?

    Yes. Climate change has had both positive and negative effects on viticulture. According to a recent study conducted by Southern Oregon University, global warming is increasing the quality of some wine vintages, and may potentially enable particular regions to grow types of grapes that were not feasible before because temperatures were generally too cold to support them. Conversely, in wine-producing regions that are generally warm (such as central California), increased temperatures mean it is more difficult to preserve acidity and flavor necessary to produce a good vintage. Furthermore, the increased occurrence of severe and extreme weather events due to climate change increases the risk for viticultural regions, where unpredictable cold snaps or severe weather can be disastrous for delicate vineyards.
