ENGLAND AND WALES are in the throes of a wine-growing boom. The vineyard area doubled between 2009 and 2017 to 2,650 hectares (6,545 acres). Investors both local and foreign (eg. deep-pocketed Champagne houses) have been piling in, tempted by tax incentives and a belief that ‘global warming’ will make wine-growing more commercially viable in the UK’s cool, damp, blustery climes. However climate change may in fact cause the UK to become cooler and wetter due to more variable North Atlantic atmospheric circulation which affects the North Atlantic jet stream.
