July 25, 2013

Strong winds, rain and hail around 4 p.m. local time ripped leaves from vines and destroyed grapes, Cecile Mathiaud, spokeswoman for the Burgundy Wine Board, said today by phone. Some vineyards were hit by flooding, she said, adding that it's too soon to predict the effect on the grape harvest.
