As weather patterns change, wineries are forced to adapt to hotter climates by altering the varietals they grow or consider moving production to milder areas.
"I have no doubt that we will still have vineyards in traditional regions, but we have to think of new strategies," said Fernando Zamora, oenology researcher and professor at Rovira i Virgili University in Tarragona, Spain. "And we will also have new zones for vineyards. Already in Germany they are making fine red wine where it used to be very difficult. And in Denmark, now they've started making wine."
