In a previous post, we asked: What role do wineries have when it comes to climate change?

Curious, I started doing some research. I ran across this video featuring Miguel Torres: "The grapes of wrath -- wine in an age of climate change" from

The explanation below the video reads:

Head of Spain's oldest family-owned winery, Miguel Torres was recently hailed by Time magazine as one of the most influential global figures trying to figure out what happens to wine in a world of rising temperatures. After watching Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth," Miguel became convinced that he needed to do something to raise awareness in his industry of the dangers of a warming world. Now his winery experiments with growing grapes at different temperatures to see how grapes and wine might be affected by climate change. He plans that his company will become carbon neutral in five years. "I want to do whatever I can, in the interests of my children and grandchildren. I at least want to be able to say we did whatever we could," Miguel said.
