Climate change is coming for your wine. What the world's wineries are doing to save grapes
September 09, 2019
High-proof (e.g. 70%) ethanol can be an effective sanitizing agent against the coronavirus causing COVID-19. Spraying of small winery surfaces or equipment for sanitization with this solution is not problematic, especially in a well-ventilated area. However, pumping high proof ethanol (for the purpose of creating sanitizing solution or sanitizing large pieces of equipment) using a normal winery pump could be hugely dangerous (explosion hazard) and should be avoided.
Soaring temperatures, irregular rain patterns and the ever-present threat of fires is causing winery owners here and around the world to adopt aggressive strategies to safeguard their livelihoods. These tactics include experimenting with new varieties of grapes, finding new ways to maximize water use and even seeking out land in areas that formerly were too cold for vineyards.
