Winemakers taking on Climate Change

May 3, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

THIS EVENT HAS ALREADY OCCURRED. A video and other learning resources are available here.

It’s not an exaggeration to say climate change has altered the wine industry forever. From grape-growing to winemaking, it has spawned an encouraging and sometime bewildering array of farming practices – forcing producers to adopt more sustainable methods of production… RAW, natural, organic, biodynamic, regenerative, low-intervention, permaculture, polyculture and more.

Debbie Gordon (CALL supporter and certified Sommelier and Canadian wine scholar) interviewed Steve Matthiasson of Matthiasson Wines in Napa Valley. Steve and his wife Jill are committed environmentalists and certified organic farmers who evaluate every agricultural decision through the lens of sustainability.  Debbie also interviewed Andrea Kaiser (Chair of Sustainable Winegrowing Ontario) to get an update on Ontario’s Wine Sustainability Certification and how the province’s winegrowers are adopting resilience strategies.
