Talk with Erin Scala of the Common House in Richmond, VA, and you’ll feel like you’ve just gotten smarter about wine.
Scala is a self-professed wine nerd and she’s passionate about keeping wine sustainable. That climate change that’s brought horrendous weather? People who care about wine, including Scala, have been raising the alarm for a long time. Wine makers have had to plant varieties of grapes that can handle hotter weather, and it’s making a difference in what’s showing up in our glasses.
Sit down, pour yourself a glass, and have a chat with Scala – but try a different grape for a change. It’s that insistence on Pinot all the time that’s leading to a lack of wine sustainability.
