Loire frost may cause wine shortages

It may become harder to obtain Loire wines from certain areas after a severe spring frost looks set to significantly dent the region’s 2016 harvest, an official report says. Severe spring frost has ruined the equivalent of between 20% and 30% of an average harvest in the Loire Valley, according to an official report by regional body InterLoire. An average harvest is around 1.9 million hectolitres, or 253 million bottles, it said.
