Judges notice impact of climate change on wine quality

he quality of wines world-wide is being affected by climate change and critics and judges are already noticing the changes.

That is the consensus from a world conference on climate change and wine in Europe.

An Australian speaker at the conference, Dr Richard Smart, says industry leaders are already planning for big shifts in varieties grown in established wine regions.

"You've got a situation where a region that's developed a reputation, let's say Coonawarra, over a hundred years or so, or some of the European regions over many hundred years, will potentially lose that reputation," he said.
