Italian winegrowers’ and wine makers’ attitudes toward climate haz-ards and their strategy of adaptation to the change


This study reports the results of a survey disseminated to Italian winegrowers and wine makers to understand their attitude toward the main climate risk factors
on grape and wine productions and their willingness to proactively act in facing the related consequences. A general noticeable concern about the future effects of climate
change and variability emerged, even with some differences between stakeholders operating in different geographic and climatic areas. Current signals of adaptation
mostly emerged at technological level, but they also included the varietal choice, with evidence to a switch from traditional varieties to others showing better pest and drought tolerance. In addition, some climate-smart cultural practices are considered ranging from water-saving irrigation methods to sustainable energy management.
