Let’s take a look at the weather forecast for the next few weeks, particularly in the run-up to the harvest. It’s a period that concerns us all, since it’s decisive for the vintage. You’ve probably noticed that not so long ago, we were talking about global warming. Now we’re talking about climate change. But why? Quite simply because most of the predictions made ten years ago have turned out to be wrong. These climate changes are real, of course, but we need to ask ourselves an important question: how are they being induced and, therefore, how can we fight against this phenomenon to save this year’s vintage despite the storms that lie ahead?
The real causes of climate change
The mass spraying of the skies in the USA, but also in the Paris region and northern France, has caused a shift in rainfall towards the south of Spain.
Having lived in the South of France for a long time myself, I’ve had the opportunity to observe this manifestation of climate disruption.
Heavy rains are now a regular occurrence in areas that used to be very dry.
Destructive floods hit southern France and Spain. There have even been hail storms in desert countries. This is, of course, an abnormal phenomenon… but certainly not natural!
The result of some people playing the sorcerer’s apprentice with the climate: we’re all affected by changes in the weather.
Of course, in the world of wine, we’re highly dependent on the climate, and these changes can have disastrous consequences for our vines.
A way out: cloudbusters
I’d like to share with you a process that I’ve tested myself.
Of course, all the solutions I’m presenting are based on my own experience and I’ve tested them out, from making videos to my recommendations for selling bottles of wine.
As a result of my research into climate change, I discovered cloudbusters.
What is a cloudbuster?
It’s an installation that produces a kind of microclimate that rebalances energies at ground level, creating a sort of protective bubble.
It’s a reasonable investment with long-term effects.
It’s therefore possible to act on a specific area, whether it’s a few dozen hectares or much larger.
I’ve seen for myself the positive effects of the devices I’ve installed beyond the area where I placed them!
Vintage years in 3
Years in “3”, such as 1983, 1993 or 2013, are traditionally rainy years, even if they are also often hot. This was not the case in 2003, when we faced an abnormal heat wave.
All this means difficult vintages for winegrowers.
What I’m anticipating for this year is that we’re bound to have some very hot spells, but it’s all going to blow over. The energies and the rebalancing of natural weather patterns will trigger violent storms, as rain has been held back for too long.
So we need to anticipate these storms and bad weather.
To find out what we can do NOW, join our group. Together, we can prepare for the 2023 vintage, which will be a great year for winegrowers who are well prepared and wide awake!
