Unusual weather impacts grape harvests
Wine WalkWeather systems around the US have changed normal vineyard patterns. The bottom line is that the quantity of grapes being harvested or anticipated to be harvested is lower than normal for a variety of reasons. The coastal areas of Texas have experienced 40 days and nights of rains, clouds and cooler-than-normal temperatures. The result was an influx of fungus which was hard to contain due to daily rains and soggy vineyards.
