Event Description

Join Eric Asimov, NYT Head Wine Critic to follow the vines around climate change. Wine is among the most sensitive and nuanced of agricultural products, demonstrates how climate change is transforming traditions and practices that may be centuries old.

 

Around the wine-growing world, smart producers have contemplated and experimented with adaptations, not only to hotter summers, but also to warmer winters, droughts and unruly events that stem from climate change; freak hailstorms, spring frosts, flooding and forest fires, just to name a few.

 

Learn about the inevitable shift in the way that wine-growers farm, how and where and when they plant, when they harvest and the way they crush. These changes will change the face and the taste of many wines. Some regions are flourishing as a result, others are dealing with big decisions. Engage in this important conversation. Taste, learn, discuss and question in this thought provoking seminar.
