British Vineyards thrive in the heat
Vineyards across Britain are thriving amidst the warming climate, placing new wine regions on the map. But what are the implications?
As a result of the warming climate, winemakers are able to produce varieties of wine that are more traditionally accustomed to France, such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, perhaps soon to be Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, as our climate continues to warm.
Meteorologist Tamsin Green went to visit Fairmile Vineyard, in Henley-on-Thames in Oxfordshire, to speak to Owner Jan Mirkowski about the impacts he's felt from the heat. Take a watch of the video above to hear.
