The climate is changing and so is production. Sweden's newfound wine-making capacity is a tangible result of global warming. Håkan Hansson is a Swedish wine grower and the fifth generation of farmers on his land in the country's south. He chose to tell his story in The Guardian, the British newspaper known for its habit of presenting complex issues like climate change through stories of ordinary life.
Håkan Hansson was able to frame the story of his family and their wine-making as the result of climate change, thanks to old diaries he keeps in a corner of his 18th-century house. They revealed meticulous details of the climate in the county of Scania, written by his mother, an amateur meteorologist. Thanks to them, he managed to piece together the puzzle of Swedish wine-making’s global success.
