Abstract:

The wine industry is a globally established example of an elite agricultural and consumer business that is socially and economically important to sustain. Climate change is already negatively impacting the industry and is predicted to become even more unstable in the future. Vintners are uniquely primed for futures-thinking, and an opportunity thus exists for the wine industry to pave the way for sustainable climate leadership. Using Curry and Hodgson’s Three Horizons model as an analytical framework, this project aims to explore an opportunity for the Ontario wine industry to become a leader in climate crisis resilience. First, context is set through a better understanding of challenges that live at the intersection of climate change, agriculture and the wine industry. Next, insights are drawn from examining both the current and imagined future state of Ontario’s wine industry. And finally, the research closes with a discussion of proposed strategies that can possibly bring a preferred Ontario wine industry future to life.
