How to Avoid a Global Wine Shortage

A global wine shortage is coming. Rising global consumption is contending with European wine production that has been acutely affected by changing weather patterns. Because wine consumption depends on regional grape varieties that are often climate-specific, poor harvests in Italy and France (the two largest global producers of wine, and among the largest consumers too) will lead to a global wine shortage as the 2012 vintage is released.

It is likely that global warming will shift the climates suitable for grape-growing. Some may disappear entirely, spelling the end of specialty products like Canadian ice wine. This presents a problem unless, of course, there was a way to take advantage of rising production in other markets such as the USA and Asia without giving up on those region-specific wine varietals.

Enter Nano Wine. A NANO Supermarket product, Nano Wine contains microwave-activated nano particles (plus placebo effect) that change the flavor of the wine. If we could reproduce the traditional varieties and vintages of wine that will be in such high demand, we could make more efficient use of global grape production and avoid the coming crisis.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
