In order to make really good tasting wine, the weather has to be kind of strange. An occasional drought or intense amount of heat that could trigger an early harvest was often found to produce the best French wines. It was rare thing. But not so much anymore. Thanks to climate change, apparently. NPR reported about findings in the journal Nature Climate Change that says since 1980, temperature extremes have become much more frequent and some of France’s vineyards are seeing the benefits. It’s all very boring (you can read about the research here if you want) but the good news is that if our planet is going down, at least we’ll be drinking good wine on the way down.
