As wine-producing regions in France, Spain and Italy shrink (shown in red), new areas may open up in northern lands (shown in blue).
Rosé . In the not too distant future, your favorite style of French wine may not come from its namesake region, or even from France at all. Climate change is altering growing conditions in wine-producing regions, and in coming decades it will change the wines produced in these regions — in some cases shifting northward the growth of grape varieties long associated with regions further south.
Sauvignon Blanc Climate change will produce winners and losers among wine-growing regions, and for every region it will result in changes to the alcohol, acid, sugar, tannins and color contained in each wine.
For good reason. In the 1960s, a handful of young vintners moved to the state, all passionate about wine and eager to be a part of something new. Within a decade, those who believed Oregon’s climate would be too cold and wet for grapes were proven wrong when a Pinot Noir from one of those trailblazers, David Lett, took home gold at the 1979 Wine Olympics in Paris.
Cabernet Shiraz Over the next 30 years, hundreds of winemakers set up shop in Oregon, eager to produce world-class Pinot Noir. Today, the state’s wine industry promotes itself with posters and other promotional items that say “Drink Pinot, Think Oregon.” But while Lett and other pioneers were focusing on Pinot Noir, a number of other vintners were giving it a go with Riesling. Indeed, about a quarter of Oregon’s vineyards were planted to Riesling in 1980. As Pinot Noir acreage exploded, however, Riesling became overshadowed.
Rosé Many consumers recoil at the sight of Riesling, as it’s still associated with the sweet, simple German wines of yesteryear, like Blue Nun. Wines like these are still produced and they’ll always have fans. But they do a disservice to true Riesling. It’s not by accident that Riesling has long been known as the “noblest of the noble grapes.” For one thing, Riesling is honest.

South Africa’s Western Cape serves as the Rainbow Nation’s cradle of vineyards as well as its celebrated wine-producing hub. Most notable is the Stellenbosch area near Cape Town, where vacationers stumble across endless rows of vines. The Mulderbosch vineyards, located in the hill country along Stellenbosch, have carved out a big presence on the South African wine scene in a very short period of time.
Wines To India Founded less than a quarter century ago, Mulderbosch Vineyards started flexing its muscle almost immediately with rave reviews from big name wine critics. The winery’s success started with well received bottlings of popular white varietals like Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc and has more recently evolved into stellar production of fabulous rosé. They’ve managed to do what only a handful of major South African wine exports have, namely, move beyond misconceptions about South African wines and the pigeonholed Pinotage variety that many Americans equate with the South African wine scene.
Grover Vineyards India Mulderbosch bottles waste no time in separating themselves from international wine label conformity, opting instead to use a bottom-to-top ribbon label that is both eye-catching and textural. After trying them, you’ll see why these wines are worthy of their beauty pageant sash.
