Vintage Watch III

Keeping on eye on weather where it counts

Vintage Watch III Here's the third installment of Vintage Watch, my project to survey the weather forecasts for wine producing regions around the globe. I've been asked why I'm doing this and criticized for wasting time with such broad bad generalizations regarding the weather when weather can be highly localized within a particular region. My reply to such criticisms? Don't read this if you feel it offers no value to you!

I was inspired to begin this project by the Wine Spectator, which back in the day, and I'm talking the mid to early 1980s here, featured just such a thing, though their reports focused on the weather that had occurred as opposed to forecasts. Still, it was the first thing I read when I opened each issue. Having an idea of what's going on around the globe can give us a better idea of what a vintage may be like, and having these reports easily available in the future will give us a fun and interesting window into vintage conditions around the globe in 2013. That is reason enough for me to continue, so without further ado: Vintage Watch III
