Frost, Drought Hit Wine Production Hard In Europe

October 10, 2017 from FoodManufacturing.com:

"Hail, frost and droughts have hit Europe's grape harvest hard, making it the smallest in 36 years. The quality of the wines, though, is expected to be excellent."
"The European Union's Copa-Cogeca farm union said Tuesday that the extreme weather means the harvest is expected to be down 14 percent, with some areas seeing a drop of as much as one third. That will cut wine production to a level not seen since 1981 at 145 million hectoliters."
"In France, production will be down 18 percent, and in Italy, the biggest wine producer in Europe, it will have sunk by 26 percent compared with last year. Sicily was hit by a decline of 35 percent."
"The European wine grape harvest has an automatic impact on the global wine market since EU production accounts for some 60 percent of worldwide output."
