Don't panic, but we may have a global wine shortage on our hands

Don't panic.

Or do, it's warranted, after all.

The world is producing less and less wine. So much so that it's about to cause a global shortage and we don't really know what to do with ourselves, to be honest.

The tragic news came this week after the International Organisation of Vine and Wine reported that Italy is expected to produce approximately 23 percent less wine this year.

France is expected to make 19 percent less and Spain will be down by 15.

Grim.

Unfortunately, it looks like we've climate change to blame for this too.

According to lads over at Vine and Wine, cold springs and intensely hot summers are ruining grapes and vineyards.

The grape-harvest is even at a 36-year low, meaning that this could be the least amount of wine produced in half a century.

Intense.

However, there is a (slight) silver lining to consider because even though Europe may be feeling the drastic wine-based effects of climate change, places like Argentina could actually increase their vino production over the next few years.

There is hope for us yet, lads.
