Global warming causes big headache for winemakers

(Continued)

Jones of Southern Oregon University urges vineyard owners to pay close attention to every aspect of their micro climate. "We have to be good stewards of the land, looking at micro fungi in the vine roots, what kind of fertilizer should be used, how the elimination of pests affects everything," he said.

"With niche crops like chocolate, coffee and wine grapes, small changes can have a large impact. The most magical things happen when a grape ripens at the margin of the climate."
