Corie Brown won a big-within-journalism award for a story on climate change and wine. Too bad she doesn't cover wine, or anything else, for the Los Angeles Times anymore.

Congratulations go out to Corie Brown, who was named winner of the Missouri Lifestyle Journalism award in the food and nutrition category for her story, “A Scorching Future: Global warming is altering the world wine map.” Corie, who recently left the paper, was cited for “groundbreaking” work that analyzes the threat of climate change to the fragile wine industry, which is critical to the economy and the reputation of California as a world-class wine producer. The prestigious awards are given in 15 categories by the Missouri School of Journalism.
