USA - Heavy rains have ruined Virginia's wine grapes this year

The heavy rains the region experienced this year helped to spread the disease, which destroyed tons of fruit. Black rot wasn’t the only problem this year. All that rain was bad for the grapes just by itself. The refrain is echoed through grapevines all over the Washington region. Some growers say it’s the worst year they’ve ever seen. The rain forced growers to make a tough decision: pick some grapes too soon or let them rot on the vine.
