The Increasingly Frequent Threat of Frost
American grapegrowers have yet to pick a single grape, but it’s already clear there will be less Pinot Noir this year. Record-low temperatures struck Oregon’s Willamette Valley—down to 26° F in some areas—in early April, just as the vineyards were starting budbreak.
