From 1950 to 1999 the majority of the world's highest quality wine-producing regions experienced growing season warming trends. Vintage quality ratings during this same time period increased significantly while year-to-year variation declined. While improved winemaking knowledge and husbandry practices contributed to the better vintages it was shown that climate had, and will likely always have, a significant role in quality variations. This study revealed that the impacts of climate change are… 
Climate and Wine : Quality Issues in a Warmer World
Climate change has the potential to greatly impact nearly every form of agriculture. History has shown that the narrow climatic zones for growing grapes for high quality wines are especially prone to
Past and Future Impacts of Climate Change on Wine Quality

Climate change and the global wine industry
Climate change has the potential to greatly impact nearly every form of agriculture. However, history has shown that the narrow climatic zones for growing winegrapes are especially prone to
Climate trends in a non-traditional high quality wine producing region
The global warming may put pressure over some world’s highest quality wine producing regions. This fact indicates the need to evaluate the presence of climate change in non-traditional wine producing
Global warming and wine quality: are we close to the tipping point?
Wine grapes are one of the most lucrative crops in the world and this value is founded heavily on traditional winegrowing regions established over hundreds of years. These regions are now
Climate changes and new productive dynamics in the global wine sector
Climate change has the potential to impact the agricultural sector and the wine sector in particular. The impacts of climate change are likely to differ across producing regions of wine. Future
Climate change and winegrape quality in Australia
Various agricultural sectors are likely to be sensitive to projected climate change. Wine- grapes are particularly sensitive to climate change because of the intrinsic link between the climate and
Impact of climate change on wine production: a global overview and regional assessment in the Douro Valley of Portugal
This paper examines the nature of climate change, viticulture and wine at the global scale and details changes and projections in the historic Douro wine region of Portugal. Overall, the observed

As part of the concept of terroir, climate is a factor that influences both the general viability of a region to ripen a specific variety of grapes and the resulting wine style. Climate variability

Climate influences on grapevine phenology, grape composition,and wine production and quality for Bordeaux, France
TLDR
By variety, the relationships between phenology, climate, and composition were typically higher for Merlot than for Cabernet Sauvignon and could be an indication that, in Bordeaux, Merlot is more phenologically and climatologically sensitive.
