World famous wineries are active on climate protection

Climate change is threatening wineries. The weather is changing and global warming influences the maturation of the grapes. For instance, the Cabernet Sauvignon of Penfolds in Australia is harvested three weeks earlier than before. To combat these challenges, the declaration 'Wineries for climate protection' was signed on the 9th of June in the city hall of Barcelona.

More wine please!

If you have to name a classic wine country, many people would choose France, Italy or Spain. Another wine country with a rich wine history, that includes typical varieties such as Riesling or Silvaner, is Germany. Especially the southwest region, with areas such as the Kaiserstuhl, the Rine- and the Moselvalley, is famous for its dry white wines. Varieties such as the Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris), Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc) and Müller-Thurgau (Rivaner) are world-famous.

Eco-Innovations: Maersk Line, Freixenet and Levi's

How promising ideas and concepts may look on paper, in practice many eco-innovation products, services, technologies and processes still fail to make the leap from lab to market. It is because of that reason that the European Union decided to set up Horizon 2020: the biggest EU research and innovation program ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available from 2014 to 2020, in order to stimulate successful sustainable innovation.

Cheers to Sustainable Champagne!

With the upcoming Christmas holidays, the sparkling wine industry is looking forward to its financial peak in the last month of the year. The Christmas and New Year’s sales of Champagne alone account for 15% of total annual. However, the core activities of the global wine business are threatened by climate change, as the map of wine is migrating to cooler climates. Champagne no longer coming from the Champagne area in France, and Cava not originally produced in Spain are possible future scenario’s. So how does the glamorous sparkling wine industry deal with this alarming issue?
