This may be the most poetic and evocative reference to wine I've seen in a very long time: "heavenly waves of wine scents and rejoicing adults chatting about great wines..." I'm afraid you might characterize me as a "flat-earther" if by that you mean someone who believes it's quite possible that human activity has caused significant climate change. (I like my Chablis at 12.5% alc., not over 13.5%!)


The problem is, the world has always changed, and sometimes dramatically fast, Steven. The idea that some immobile weather patterns are here for ever is illusory (that's what I mean by flat-earher mentality). I feel that when people begin to see the world through this guilt prism, there's no end to it. Tomorrow they'll ask to cull all the cows because of the huge volume of methane that they release... We humans sure play a role but many other factors play a role like the Pinatubo eruption or solar radiation.
Some scientists even said recently that we could be heading fast to an ice age...I follow you on the 12,5° Chardonnay of course, and if the ice age loiters on the way, we might have to plant vineyards up north...

This really a wonderful blog. I wanted to thank you for this great read!! I definitely enjoying every little bit of it smile I have you bookmarked to check out new stuff you post.
