Study: Grape Production Leaving CA for Montana
A new National Academy of Sciences study says 70% of the land now used in California for grape production won’t be any good for that purpose in 2050.
And who will take over grape growing from California? As reported in the San Jose Mercury News, “the greatest area of increasing wine production suitability is in the Rocky Mountains near the Canadian-U.S. border, putting at risk species such as the grizzly bear, gray wolf and pronghorn.” The glaciers are already gone from Glacier National Park and vineyards would spruce up the bare slopes nicely, don’t you think?
