Will our wine beat the heat?
The international body of climate change says grapevines have what it takes to beat the heat. The head of the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) says grapevines are hardy little numbers and can survive global warming over the long term. In Australia, Treasury Wine Estates Ltd, is testing technology to water vines underground. It’s also expanding fermentation capacity to combat the impact of climate change on its vineyards around the world.
