Climate Change and Vineyards in Chile

This interesting little article says that a recent PWC study suggests that climate change will lead Chilean vineyards further and further south in search of optimum conditions for growing vines. Vina Morande has already started setting up as far south as Lago Llanquihue, an area that currently is far too wet and cool for most Chilean vines. One thing that the Lake Region doesn't lack is water, something that could eventually become a probably in the Central Valley if the issue of water rights isn't properly managed.

  1. Hi Matt

    You commented on a comment I left on Margaret's link on Facebook on the sexist interpretation of gender roles in Chile by that aging gringo ;-) (was that confusing?) So I thought I would say hi on your blog though this has nothing to do with your post here.

    I have been reading your blogs for a while, dreaming about a winery in Chile (my Chilean husband and I are moving back next year some time (if we can ever win the lottery, we'll contact you!)
