While microplastics have always been thought of as a far-away issue, mainly disrupting marine and other animals, studies show that it is hitting much closer to home.

The studies of microplastics in wine specifically are rather limited, with few researchers focusing on the effects (if any) on wine. However, there have been numerous studies done on the effects of microplastics on agriculture as a whole, which innately includes vineyards. The findings are disturbing, to say the least, and highlight the importance of sustainable living and making an effort to reduce our environmental impact.
