Sorry, no more wine! Tuscan agriculture in a climate change regime


This project will try to explore the best adaptation options and strategies for Tuscan viticulture given its particularities, constraints, weaknesses and strengths, in a climate change regime and try to reduce the intrinsic uncertainty of climate change, by assessing more adaptation options.

The adaptation challenge is the high risk associated with the long-term perspective bound to a cultivar such as grapevine: many of the adaptation options (either moving the vineyard or changing the cultivated variety) are irreversible, at least in the short-term, for many farmers.
