Incidences like the heat wave in 2003 reducing yields in France, and the increasing need to harvest early drive the point home. And yet, some people still deny it despite the droughts in South Africa, ability to make wine in England now, and drastic weather swings worldwide. The wine industry is looking to mitigate weather change with techniques like changing what variety they plant, which begs the question: will terroir become a thing of the past?
