Scientists in search of the wine of tomorrow

What if tomorrow’s wine contained more alcohol and was sweeter because of climate change and earlier grape picking seasons?

Bordeaux wine is facing such a risk, with growers encountering increasing challenges over the past decades due to global warming.

But since 2009 a group of scientists has been researching how wineries in the region can adapt to higher temperatures and drier summers.

By growing 52 types of grape varieties from various countries on experimental land, they are trying to create the wine of the future.
