OK, I give up. I'm on the global-warming bandwagon, too:
In North America's most renowned wine-growing region, Napa Valley in California, current conditions are near-perfect.
"You have the climate, you have ideal soils and a history of winemaking that goes back to the turn of last century. It's a combination of those things that makes Napa Valley unique," says Jeff Virnig, winemaker at Robert Sinskey Vineyards.
A subtle variation of temperatures and conditions in different places means "you can pretty much grow any grape variety here in this valley".
Some scientists say global warming could turn that all on its head.
A study by the America's National Academy of Sciences last year suggested that the area of the US suitable for growing premium wine grapes could decline by 81% by the end of the century.
Screw the polar bears and the coastal areas and the ice caps and the silly, needy children. You start messing with my wine, we've got problems.Thank God I drink red wine, which is best served warm, unlike that sissy white wine people insist on refrigerating.
