Bay Area winemakers are feeling climate change more acutely than ever this harvest season
This year’s wine harvest is well underway throughout California, and vintners in some parts of the state say they’re feeling the effects of climate change more acutely than ever. The drought has left grapevines parched. Fruit yields are dramatically low. Vines look visibly stressed. In some vineyards, all of the grapes seem to be ripening all at once, presenting winemakers with a logistical impossibility. And the threat of wildfire — which, by this time last year, had ruined grapes up and down the state with pernicious smoke — remains on everyone’s mind.
