Charcoal wine ‘the future’ says Armit futurologist

Out with house wine in with home-brewed English ‘craft-wine’

“The UK’s increasingly temperate climate, ideal for growing grapes; an increasing appetite for knowing the source of our produce; and a desire for trying new artisan experiences; will contribute to wine lovers growing and sharing their own home-made ‘craft-wine’.

“This follows the success of British wine brands like Digby Fine English, Chapel Down, Nyetimber and prestigious Champagne brands such as Taittinger producing their own English wine in Kent.”

  1. Wonderful! I agree that we will be drinking more domestic wines: climate change will mean that transport costs will be prohibitive and that there will be more countries capable of producing wine as our classic regions will have to deal with crop diversification. I also see that irrigation will be rendered illegal, not only in Europe as per tradition, but also globally, as freshwater supplies disappear. Dry farming legislation will be the norm everywhere, not just Europe, which will create a level playing field and will mean fewer wines, but better wines and healthier soils.
