THE IMPACT OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON VINEYARD MANAGEMENT AND WINEMAKING
In partnership with: Wine Spectator
Recent changes in the climate and more specifically the increase in temperature ranges over the last decades have brought about changes already observed in the physiology of the vine and the quality of the wines. All research centers around the world are mobilized to find solutions to master and reduce the impacts of climate change on the wine and spirits sector.
Biological responses are tested through programs conducted in cooperation between research institutes. Interdisciplinary programs are already combining genetics, agronomy, oenology, economics or sociology. The combination of these disciplines aims to better understand biological, technical and socio-economic processes to maintain and improve the quality of wine and adapt it to a new environment. Producers and winemakers benefit from advances in research and do not hesitate to experiment with protocols.
The conference will be moderated by CNN correspondent Jim BITTERMANN in Paris
