As the readers may already know, Copernicus is the European Union’s Earth Observation Programme, looking at our planet and its environment for the ultimate benefit of all European citizens. Copernicus Observer is the weekly bulletin issued by the Copernicus Support Office, presenting the most relevant news on the development, achievements and impact of the Copernicus programme.
The 27th February issue of the Copernicus Observer (CO) is devoted to climate change and winemaking, and – guess what – Saturnalia is brought into play, including a quote from Daniele De Vecchi, the project coordinator at TA. The CO discusses how Saturnalia, besides its intended goal of forecasting wine quality, can also help winegrowers adapting to climate change.
Needless to say, we are very happy that our project made it to the Copernicus official bulletin, and will be even happier in witnessing how the service will convey real benefits to the winemaking chain even in these adverse, climate-change times.
