The success of vintners in Bordeaux, France and the Mosel Valley in Germany during the last thirty years is described. the possibility that this success will be temporary and that global temperature change will eventually undermine famous wine making regions around the world is considered. The potential for this process to disrupt the association of wines with the regions in which their grapes are grown, or terroir, is considered. The increasing average growing season temperature, which determines grape ripeness, is said to be increasing. Controversy surrounding the adaptation of wine growing regions to changing climates is considered. INSETS: What makes a good wine?;European agriculture and climate change.
