The Rain In Spain

The Rain In Spain

In English, it’s just drizzle. In Spanish, it’s more graphic. The literal translation of “calabobos” is something that soaks fools. Rather than a downpour – the sort of weather that sends you scurrying for a doorway – it’s the kind of rain that you barely notice, the stuff that drenches your clothes, drip by drip by drip.

Bordeaux, Burgundy – it's time to irrigate!

Bordeaux, Burgundy – it's time to irrigate!

This year for the first time vignerons in Pomerol have 'exceptionally' been allowed to irrigate in the face of record high temperatures in Europe and their adverse effect on vines. This is the third year in a row that irrigation has been allowed in Pessac-Léognan (see this report in Vitisphere). Scientists predict that we will experience similar heatwaves and drought more often in the near future. Climate change is here and now.

There May Be Hope For France's Wine, Despite Drought

If you've been rationing your bottles of Beaujolais and Bordeaux, rumor has it that may no longer be necessary. In a recent press release, experts suggested that wine production in France is expected to make a bit of a comeback, rising between 13 and 21%, despite struggles related to climate change. It might sound like a bit of a contradiction, but let us explain.

How France’s wine industry is adapting to climate change

France’s vineyards have had a difficult year thanks to the effects of climate change – with late frosts, hailstorms, repeated heatwaves and a historic drought.

Are irrigation and artificial ponds the key to mitigating climate change in Italian viticulture? Rhabdomancers wanted.

As Italian grape growers faced extreme heat and prolonged drought in what could have been an existential threat for many of them in the 2022 vintage, there was ample talk across the peninsula about the need to build artificial ponds and loosen restrictions on so-called “emergency irrigation.”

Jamie Goode: Will climate chaos kill Burgundy?

Jamie Goode: Will climate chaos kill Burgundy?

I prefer the term climate chaos to climate change. Change seems to understate the magnitude of what the planet is facing. Chaos better describes the unpredictability of the way that weather patterns seem to be so hugely messed up of late. It adds a sense of urgency to discussions about what we should do in response. And for viticulture we seem to be facing a crisis.

10 Ways Climate Change Is Threatening The World's Wine Industry

10 Ways Climate Change Is Threatening The World's Wine Industry

2011 to 2020 was the warmest decade on record for planet Earth, according to United Nations. The global wine industry, which is largely the product of the growing environment of each vineyard within unique production regions, is reporting that changes in the climate are impacting traditional methods and expectations. This goes beyond rising temperatures. "Because the Earth is a system, where everything is connected, changes in one area can influence changes in all others," (via United Nations).

Hugelkultur in a Vineyard: A Permaculture Experiment

Hugelkultur in a Vineyard: A Permaculture Experiment

One of the best parts of working at Tablas Creek Vineyard is that any idea that pertains to organic, biodynamic, or regenerative agriculture is on the table for discussion. During a harvest lunch, Assistant Winemaker Craig Hamm spoke with Winemaker Neil Collins about a hugelkultur project he’d started at his home, and the wheels started to spin. I had no clue what this term meant or where it came from. It was easy to find out about, though! The concepts of all forms of permaculture are fascinating and fit into Tablas Creek's recipe book quite nicely, using nature to enhance nature.

What’s the difference between pergola and tendone? The answer may be the key to viticulture in the age of climate change.

The notion that tendone and pergola training systems could represent one of the grand solutions for winemakers facing the wrathful challenges of climate change was first suggested to me many years ago by the writer, publisher, and in-demand vineyard manager Maurizio Gily.
