It's almost as if climate change which, of course, doesn't exist, might be economically detrimental.

Grapes are excruciatingly-sensitive to their micro-climates.  That's why there are only a handful of places on Earth which can grow wine-quality grapes.  (Ok, good wine.)  Finding new places to grow wine grapes won't be as easy as finding new places to drill for oil.

If you cut off the Karens' wine supply...we might actually do something about Climate change.

maybe if California was serious about the climate and not money they'd stop trying to create biomes there that aren't self-sufficient.

Maybe this will cause wine to evolve into something that tastes good.

Stop producing raisins and start producing more wine instead.

Article about California grapes features photo of Oregon vineyard. This means something.

We must do way instain evolvement and stick with grape juice, which is pretty damned tasty.

Good thing I am not a fan of a lot of California wines, They tend to over oak them.

Why is the article using images from the Willamette Valley?  I understand it has been overrun with people from California, but if the article is about one location, why does it have a picture of another?

Here's some non wine grapes to follow the theme

Cool, a very nice place to go, lots of great food and they treat their employees very fairly. Yes I know they hit the Easy Coast, Sorry I have gone to them since I was a child. So very California

The wine industries loves to keep doing the wrong thing decade after decade.   Things like the cork is bad for wine and there are better options that don't require a cork screw.

Last good wine I had with a cork was a 1971 Penfolds Grange.  The bottles of Grange Penfolds put in screw caps back 1997 are using for controled tests and are doing better than expected with aging characteristics.  The 1997 is about a $500 bottle of wine.  The screw on caps seem to do much better when the temperature isn't properly controlled.  If you have a 40 year old white wine, it better have a Stelvin cap or it likely won't be any good.

The screw on cap gets rid of the stupid wine tasting dance.  Bottles with screw caps don't randomly go bad.

The onlyway we can reverse this is to force the confiscation and crushevery 1974 and odr vehice we can find. Seriously, why TF in this day and age people still own and drive them? This is freakin' 2021. Those inconsiderate owners are causig this global warming.

Yes, clearly while temperatures are swinging wildly we'll just set up new crops in the barren wastelands left by the wildfires, and they'll produce just what we need instantly. It's not like we haven't spent decades setting up irrigation and choosing appropriate areas with good soil and climate.

Anyone who thinks we can easily adapt to changing climate is a fool. Yes, humans have lived though climate change before, but not 7 billion humans. It's gonna be a mess.

Yeah, it's great if you didn't spend a month under a forest fire smoke cloud:
