Climate projections for a Spanish wine company (Bodegas Torres)
After request of a winemaker interested in identifying potential sites for grape plantation in the South America, we performed an analysis to identify if and where it will be possible to grow grapes in 2050. Six wine indices accounting for climate projections of temperature and precipitation were used in the assessment.
We are currently developing the RESILIENCE prototype for agriculture: a climate service tool that will provide wine producers with well-founded information to be able to apply correctly adaptation strategies on specific grape varieties and locations, to achieve optimum production results (in terms of yield and quality). The prototype will be validated by real demonstration with end-users on three demosites belonging to wine stakeholders from Spain, Italy and Portugal, which are likewise partners in the consortium (Codorniu, Mastroberardino and Symington).
