Winegrowing is all about controlling the slightest variations of flavor. With climate change causing warmer temperatures that change wine flavor, wildfires that turn grapes smokey, and sudden frosts that can entirely ruin a harvest, wine lovers certainly have reason to be concerned. This week, The Sweaty Penguin explores how climate change impacts wine, how these challenges fit into the rapidly globalizing wine industry, and what needs to happen to ensure you can still buy your favorite wines in the future. With special guest Dr. Michelle Moyer: Associate Professor of Viticulture and Enology at Washington State University.
