From 10 to 13 April, Bordeaux Sciences Agro hosted the International Climwine Symposium on sustainable grape and wine production in the context of climate change.
Earlier grape harvests, hydric stress, wines with higher alcohol content, less acidic wines, new aroma profiles, etc.— climate change is already impacting viticulture and French wines. What changes are envisaged? What innovations will allow viticulture and oenology to adapt?
The Symposium was attended by 150 international researchers and professionals to discuss issues related to climate change in order to define adaptation strategies and provide decision-making tools to address the critical issue of climate change adaptation for viticulture and oenology.
This Symposium was put on by INRA as part of INRA’s ACCAF (‘Adaptation au Changement Climatique pour les Agrosystèmes et des Forêts’ / climate change adaptation for agrosystems and forests) meta-programme. It was organised and coordinated by INRA, the University of Bordeaux’s Institut des Sciences de la Vigne et du Vin (ISVV), Bordeaux Sciences Agro and the Life-ADVICLIM project.
