Vineyards in Bordeaux, France are expecting a major loss financial loss after their crops were hit with a frost two consecutive days in late April. Between the loss of fifteen to thirty percent of the harvest and the loss of profits, the damage is estimated to cost the wine industry a total of one to two billion euros. It is also estimated that production will plummet by three hundred and fifty million bottles while some producers are at risk of seeing their whole production cease. Many farmers are resorting to extreme measures such as candles, heaters, & helicopters to combat these effects. This comes on the heels of two previous years with reduced productivity due to poor weather and frost.
“France’s total wine output fell 10 percent last year due to adverse weather conditions.”
