The Wine World Is About to Get a Big Shake-Up

Outside magazine posted an interesting story about how winemakers in regions like Napa Valley are dealing with more extreme weather and warmer temperatures in their production of wines. Adaptations like choosing new varieties or hybrids, changing the orientation of the rows to provide shade from the hot summer sun, and growing vines closer to the ground can all help. Using grapes from warmer climates and learning how to use their unique tastes to make great wine is also a learning process for the growers.
