    DescriptionThis book is a scientific analysis of the soil and climatic factors affecting wine grape production, and thus, ultimately, wine itself. It provides a reasoned basis for the term 'terroir', and critically examines the science of climate change and how it could affect viticulture and winemaking. Dr John Gladstones is an internationally recognised authority on climate and viticulture, and among other achievements was instrumental in the establishment of the Margaret River wine district in Western Australia. 'For anyone interested in the future interaction between climate, climate change and viticulture, this book simply has to be read. Dr John Gladstones's painstaking research is the foundation for his equally carefully constructed conclusions that robustly challenge mainstream opinions. - James Halliday 'Just when I thought I had it all sorted after 18 years of travelling with Viticulture and Environment and giving a copy to all of my friends, the grand old renaissance man of viticulture has produced Wine, Terroir and Climate Change. Not only do I have to buy a whole new set of his books to give away, I have to rethink my long term viticultural strategy of defence against climate change in the much more comfortable logic he presents of the resilience of terroir. John Gladstones's intricately researched understanding of climate mechanisms and history, geology, soil and biology has created a welcome antidote to climate hysteria.' - Brian Croser 'This is the eagerly anticipated successor to Viticulture and Environment - and it does not disappoint. After a prodigious amount of research, Dr Gladstones has delivered a thought-provoking mixture of science, history and inspired deduction in this masterful work. Without any doubt, his views on the causes of climate change are controversial - and I look forward to the debate that will inevitably ensue.' - Peter Dry
