Research suggests parts of UK could be too hot for wine making by 2080
Date:5/27/2008

Professor Selley from Imperials Department of Earth Science and Engineering, said: My previous research has shown how the northernmost limit of UK wine-production has advanced and retreated up and down the country in direct relation to climatic changes since Roman times.

Now, with models suggesting the average annual summer temperature in the south of England could increase by up to five degrees centigrade by 2080, I have been able to map how British viticulture could change beyond recognition in the coming years. Grapes that currently thrive in the south east of England could become limited to the cooler slopes of Snowdonia and the Peak District.

Professor Sir Brian Hoskins, Director of the Grantham Institute for Climate Change at Imperial College London, said: This research shows how the environment in the UK could be affected by climate change in a relatively short period of time. Increases in temperature over the course of this century could have a dramatic effect on what can be grown here, including vines.
