This page contains data that we have either published or used. Most of our data is stored in the Knowledge Network for Biocomplexity (KNB)–an international repository to facilitate reproducible ecological and environmental research. The data used in our published papers are also made publicly available and can also be found as a link on our Publications page.

Vintage Data:  Data were analyzed in Cook & Wolkovich, ‘Climate change decouples drought from early wine grape harvests in France’ published in Nature Climate Change 2016. Also used in Morales-Castilla et al. 2020.

Budburst and leafout phenology of 50 varieties of winegrapes: Grown in greenhouse conditions, with 10 varieties also grown in growth chambers for heat tolerance of flowering study.

UC-Davis Robert Mondavi Institute: Phenological data on winegrape varieties monitored at Robert Mondavi Institute in Davis, California. 

Historical Climate Data: Compiled by a non-profit, non-governmental, independent, non-partisan group – BEST (Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature) 

Region by region lists of winegrape varieties: This list come from the book, Which winegrape varieties are grown where? A global empirical picture by Anderson and Aryal. 

Shape files of the world’s winegrowing regions based on maps from 2007:  Files from the Knowledge Network for Biocomplexity.

      • Phenological data: We combined three types of data: data we collected at UC-Davis (link above), and data from published papers. 
        • We extracted (`scraped’) ourselves from the following papers. We’re happy to share the scraped data, just reach out if you’re interested.
