Exploring the impact of climate change on wine
Led by the EU market, the global wine industry is becoming increasingly internationalised and reliant on scientific and technological processes to manage production and quality. In the EU, a top priority is to make producers even more competitive – enhancing the reputation of European wines and expanding market share both in the EU and outside. How has science and technology been leveraged to expand the wine industry globally, improved the quality of wine and shaped the flavor of wines? How has climate change shifted the taste of the wines? The EU-funded Red and White project will answer these and other questions. The research will draw from historical studies of science and technology, particularly the theory of a historical palate, and extend to digital history and material cultural studies.
