Dramatically warmer winters. Extreme temperature swings. Increasing ‘out of season’ weather events. ‘False springs.’ Freeze. Thaw. Repeat. Is it getting warmer or is that just my imagination?

Participants will learn about trends in weather patterns and what growers and winemakers will be facing in the future in regards to challenges in this time of “climate change”. Minnesota Public Radio Chief Meteorologist and MPR Climate Cast Host Paul Huttner drills down into the reality of climate change and wine grapes.
