On April 27 a frost descended on the vineyards of Bordeaux, France. At least one billion euros of damage was done, the biggest disaster in the past 25 years for wine growers. The level of damage was greater in lower locations because the frost flowed into those areas. As much as 60 percent of the region was affected. Other areas of Europe were also impacted including England, Germany and northern Italy. Some shortages might occur, and the value of the wine that does get produced may be higher.
