Summer Hailstorm Damages Barolo and Monteferrato Vineyards

ITALY (Langhe) – After the low at the end of July with unusually strong winds, rainfalls, and hailstorms, it is clear – top vineyards in the Piedmont region noticeably suffered. Rainfalls and hailstorms pattered over large parts of the Lange area on the grapes during two days. The tempest was aggravated by strong winds. “It was a real tornado”, regional vintners said. The vineyards damaged form a broad strip around Barolo and Monteferrato. The vintners expect noticeable yield losses, depending on the region.
