Climate resilience in the UK wine sector — CREWS-UK

 In Business planning, Vineyard establishment

Vinescapes are thrilled to be involved with a new research venture, studying future climate change projections and impacts on UK wine production, CREWS-UK. As cool climate viticulture expands rapidly in the UK, this new research project will improve information on how climate change will affect the wine production sector, to inform better decision-making and investment.

The project is being run between The London School of Economics and the University of East Anglia in conjunction with Vinescapes and Weatherquest. By integrating new bespoke climate scenarios with increased understanding of adaptive behaviour in the UK wine production sector, the CREWS-UK project aims to translate model results into more user-relevant information, contextualised to suit the detailed needs of different stakeholders.

The CREWS-UK project is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), the Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment, and the Economic and Social Research Council through the Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy. It is being carried out in 2019/20.
