Here’s the bad news: we’re melting the ice caps, polluting the air, filling the oceans with trash, chopping down forests, slowly driving all species (including our own) toward extinction, and otherwise doing our very best to destroy the earth and make Captain Planet cry.
The good news? Climate change is making the wine taste AMAZING. Hell yeah!
This week, Nature Climate Change published a study from researchers Benjamin I. Cook and Elizabeth M. Wolkovich (it’s official because they used middle initials!) which says thanks to the increasing temperatures caused by man-made climate change, wine is actually getting tastier.
That’s because in wine-making, an early harvest of grapes means grapes with a better acid balance and a higher sugar content, which means a higher quality kind of wine.
