LIFE Sarmiento attended the final meeting organized by LIFE ADVICLIM “The challenge of climate change for European viticulture. Adaptation tools” on January 29 and 30 on the occasion of the finalization of the project.
The project has aimed at study climate change adaptation and mitigation scenarios for a variety of vineyards that represent the climatic diversity of European wine regions. During the first day, took place the presentation of different projects related to the mitigation and adaptation to climate change, among which was LIFE SARMIENTO. After the presentations, there was a series of debates on current issues around the vineyard, sustainability and climate change in which different adaptation and mitigation strategies in viticulture, methods of measuring the impacts of viticulture and indicators of the viticulture climate impact were exposed. At the end of the day, were visited the vineyard farms of one of the pilot areas of the project in Carbonera (La Rioja) as well as the Ochoa Wineries in Olite.
The second day was dedicated to a workshop with wine growers and other stakeholders in the Viticulture and Oenology Station of Navarra. During the workshop, different tools for adapting the wine sector to climate change were presented such as the recovery of traditional varieties and biotopes or the management of vegetation and irrigation in cultivation operations, among others. The day concluded with a round table of experiences and projects in which LIFE SARMIENTO participated together with LIFE NAdapta, LIFE MIDMACC, Interreg POCTEFA VITISAD and VITES-QUALITAS project.
