Bordeaux Wine Drama. Rain Arrives Finally

Every year Bordeaux vintners nervously look towards the sky to see when the rains will come and what impact they’ll have on the harvesting. Without much rain this summer, vineyard owners were getting nervous. Rain finally came a few days ago with 25mm falling across much of the Medoc, and between 15mm and 35mm fallling in Saint Emilion and Pomerol.
