As I mentioned in the introduction to this article, parts of Burgundy were absolutely devasted last week by massive hail stroms and flash flooding. Nothing is going to allow those producers to recover from the devastation this year, and possibly even next. It is a sad fact of life with farmers; their year's work can disappear in just a few short minutes on any given day. Our hearts go out to those that have suffered, and for those who escaped the damage of last week we are glad to see the weather turning in their favor with an end to the rain and sunny skies in the forecast.
