Agricultural disaster; French wine lost one-third of its production after rare freezing temperatures

At least a third of French wine production worth in sales will be gone this year. This can be after uncommon freezing temperatures that crushed numerous vines and fruit crops over France, raising concerns over the climate emergency.

The unseasonal wave of severe frost and ice hit abruptly after a bout of warm climate which worsened the harm. The warmth had encouraged vines and fruit trees to develop earlier than normal, as it were to be shriveled by the sudden cold.

The devastation has hit a swathe of France, including Bordeaux, Burgundy, the Rhône Valley, and Provence. Harming vines but also hitting cultivators of kiwis, apricots, apples, and other fruit as well as crops such as beet and rapeseed.

Wine-makers had combat over a few evenings to try to spare vineyards, attempting to warm-up areas by lighting thousands of little fires and candles close to the vines and trees. This made the exceptional display of the night sky lit by rows of blazes between vines.
