Reacting to Climate Change

A while back I wrote about how winegrowers are adjusting to climate change.

As further evidence, Decanter has an interesting article about growers in Italy's Alto Adige.  Some are moving vineyards to higher (cooler) elevations and shifting to a varietal (tempranillo!) that does well in warmer climates.  And some growers there believe that biodynamic methods will help them deal with climate change by achieving higher acidity and lower sugar levels (leading to lower alcohol after fermentation).
