Today I’d like to share with you a very informative article about the future of winemaking in Ireland. For the longest time the British isles and Ireland in particular has been an outliner when it comes to winemaking. Due to hard work of domestic winemakers and some rather unfortunate circumstances, that is changing now.
A great article about winemaking in Ireland
So what this article on the TheTaste.ie is doing is an analysis and a look at one of the more popular smaller wineries in Ireland, David Dennison. For the longest time the winners of famous wine shows in the world would be famous wineries from countries like France, Spain, Germany, United States, etc.
Well in recent years smaller countries, wineries from smaller countries to be more precise, like David Dennison, have started to make inroads into the global wine scene. 2 things are responsible for that. For one, our domestic winemakers are learning to more successfully grow high quality grapes. Second reason for better success of our own winemakers isn’t that positive. Climate change is affecting Ireland weather, which makes it possible to grow grape varieties that would normally not succeed here. Maybe we could consider that a silver lining of climate change? **nervous chuckle**. Check out the article for full details.
