Wineries Worried About Warm Weather

Grape budCORVALLIS, Ore. — Local farmers are concerned that our current warm weather will negatively affect this season’s grape crops.

Vintners say due to the warm weather, grape buds are already starting to break, but they shouldn’t be breaking at least for another three weeks.

“The problem is the frost season isn’t over yet. If we get frost on these buds, we’re going to lose at least half of the crop. That’s going to be a huge economic loss,” said David Buchanan, Owner or Tyee Wine Cellars.
