Global warming may make Britain ideal red wine producer – Earth – Science & Technology


Rising temperatures caused by climate change could make Britain a leading producer of red wine. This follows from a new study reported by the Independent news server.

Research into climate change by Britain’s wine sector has suggested that rising heat will affect grapes and Britain could become a key player in the production of high-quality wine.

Temperatures in the UK’s wine regions could rise by 1.4 degrees Celsius by 2040, according to climate projections. Since the 1980s, they have already increased by one degree.

According to scientists, due to climate warming, the conditions for the production of British wines are beginning to resemble those of France more and more. For example, the current best areas for growing pinot noir will shift to the north of France as a result of temperature changes. Research leader Professor Stephen Dorling, from the University of East Anglia, said: “We didn’t used to be famous for making quiet red wines, but the changing climate is putting that into perspective.”

According to him, British winemakers should take advantage of this and plant more vines to take advantage of the increase in temperatures expected in the coming decades. More than 15.6 million bottles of red wine were produced in Britain for the first time in 2018, thanks to an exceptionally long flight, the Independent added.
