Global wine production plummeted to an almost six-decade low this year — and that isn’t even the worst news.
Thanks to the ravages of climate change, experts say that these sorts of bad harvests, once considered historic, will likely grow more common in the future.
This week, the International Organization of Vine and Wine, a Paris-based scientific and technical group, announced that production would fall by roughly 3 billion bottles this year, a drop of more than 8 percent from 2016 and the lowest level seen since 1961. The losses were driven by a trio of extreme weather events in Italy, France and Spain; the most-affected regions include those that produce Bordeaux, Rioja and Chianti.

Study : Decreases in Global Beer Supply Due to Extreme Drought, Heat
KTVN, le 15 octobre 2018
A new study says climate change may leave people crying in their costlier beer.
The international study says bouts of extreme heat waves and drought will cut production of barley, a key ingredient of beer.
When that happens, beer prices on average could double. In countries like Ireland, prices could triple.
Previous studies have detailed how chocolate, coffee and wine will be made scarcer and more expensive because of human-caused climate change.
Steve Davis of the University of California, Irvine, says the beer research was partly done to drive home the not-that-palatable message that climate change is messing with all sorts of aspects of our daily lives.
