Crisis in Bordeaux: Support Bordeaux Growers

Crisis in Bordeaux
Last Updated: June 5th, 2021

Join us and support Bordeaux growers! You may or may not have heard, but last weekend there was a crisis in Bordeaux, the region was struck with some immensely forceful Hailstorms.

They reportedly hit 3% of the wine growing areas badly, with a further 3% likely to have been affected on a lesser scale, according to the Bordeaux governing body CIVB.

While having disastrous consequences for the 3% (3,400 ha) severely hit – primarily in Bourg and Blaye, and the southern end of the Haut-Médoc – with some vineyards completely wiped out (80% loss or more). In comparison to the devastating impact of storms in 2017, it has had a fairly minimal impact on most areas. They reported that there were hailstorms as big as eggs!
