Reply to "And if in 20 or 30 years Barolo wine will no longer exist?"

I’m with you, g-man.  The wine is going to change— possibly different clones, certainly different growing conditions. It may irk traditionalists, but I think there will still be a wine from Piedmont called  Barolo, or maybe Barolo Novo, that will have at least a passing resemblance to the current wine, and probably a clear ancestral link.

And it would be foolish to presume that Barolo will be unique in this regard. I think a lot of the world's major wine regions are going to experience a relatively rapid evolution. I won’t be here to see how it is all going to end, but I’m sure it’s going to be a most interesting time, to say the least.

i think they're talking about planting champagne vines in alaska now.
