Oregon Scientist Tracks Climate Change Effects On Wine

Humans have been drinking wine for a very long time.  And we've generally figured out which grapes grow best in certain climates. 

Trouble is, the climates are more variable than they used to be.  That's created a problem for winemakers, and a career for Greg Jones

Dr. Jones is regarded as one of the top wine climatologists in the world, and he left Southern Oregon University for Linfield College last year.  We bring him back to the Exchange for a check-in on how vineyard owners can respond to climate change.
