The wine industry has survived worse in the past, phylloxera almost destroyed it completely at one point, so I'm sure it can handle a little change in climate.

Of course it can, if the climate would STOP changing, but then you have no interest in stopping or even slowing climate change.

And the problem is also the COSTS and disruption while vintners lose their shirts and others start vinyards in regions previously unsuited (at enormous costs). We can expect average quality to go down due to the disconnect between optimal growing conditions and the climate year to year for either the NEW or OLD estates since the changes will be continuous and unpredictable. And a lot of areas that were DEFINED by their product (i.e. wine districts) will suddenly find that their 'brand' is tarnished by problems in SOME parts of their 'region'.

You may as well hope that the world stops spinning, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty.

That's because I'm a realist, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty.

That's been happening since wine was first invented, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty.

Thanks for displaying your complete lack of knowledge of the subject, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty.

That doesn't happen, "suddenly," it's a long, slow process that's easily recognised at an early stage, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty.

There is no connection between anthropogenic industrial output and the rotational inertia of the earth. Boy are you stupid!

Picking one comment from 5 is commonly known as cherry picking, Mr undoubtably Spelt Fourty, something you're getting quite good at.
What you aren't good at, is providing evidence for your many and various outrageous, laughable claims.
