In their greed for wine, and to collect every possible penny
from the exertions of the soil and sunshine (not to mention
quite a bit of people-work also), people have planted millions
of acres of vineyards in this several-county region. Eventually,
all will succumb to some insect, some disease, some depletion...
or perhaps come to be replaced with food crops if they're
lucky enough not to be covered with houses.
