Climate change will affect the wines we drink ( Sweetness vs. acidity)

climate change will affect the wines we drink.
By mid-century, more than four-fifths of the land in France, Italy and Spain that’s now used for vineyards will be producing grapes unsuited for wine, according to a 2013 study. Australia stands to lose up to three-quarters of its currently viable vineyard land; California’s looking at a 70% decline

To prevent sugars from overwhelming the acidity, some wineries now pick grapes up to a month before they would have a century ago. The problem that warming temperatures presents is that if you pick grapes too early, they’ll be bland (Sweetness vs. acidity)
