January-like-temperatures in April spell doom for European Vineyards


03 - may - 17

Sub-zero temperatures are common in many parts of Europe. However, the occurrence of such weather in late April is not. The plunging temperatures have caused a lot of damages to many vines in France, Germany and Switzerland, reports Decanter.com.

While some regions in France experienced temperatures as low as -5° Celsius, the condition was no better in parts of Switzerland. The frost that came along with the lowered temperatures is said to have damaged more than 550 hectares of vineyards in Switzerland’s Valais region.

The winemakers are disappointed because the cold and the frost will have an impact on the overall wine production. The vintage may fall by as much as 30%, say the experts.

Some of the local winery owners in France tried to combat the problem by launching helicopters over the vines to dry off the frost and make the air warmer. Whether this will change the fortune of the 2017 vintage remains to be seen.
