60 Minutes reached out to Alberto Cordero for this week’s show on “wine and weather.” Look out for his photo in its Sunday (12/26) broadcast.
Alberto is one of the few producers who has spoken out about the challenges of grape farming in the era of climate change.

It’s not every day that you get a call from the producers of 60 Minutes, the historic Sunday evening news show on CBS.
But that’s exactly what happened last week: Alberto Cordero, legacy winemaker and grower in Barolo, was contacted by their production team because they wanted permission to use one of his photos of frost damage in April 2017.
Look out for the program and Alberto’s photo when the show airs this Sunday, December 26 (check your local listings for exact schedule).
Alberto has been one of the few Barolo producers who have spoken openly about the challenges of grape farming in the era of climate change.
Earlier this year, we published his notes on the 2017 vintage, one of the toughest in recent memory.
We’ll be looking out for the show and will check in with Alberto after the holiday for his impressions and thoughts. So please check back.
