The Figaro reported on August 6 that the frost weather in this spring was the most serious disaster in French agriculture in this century. Affected by this, a large number of grapes in major wine producing areas such as Alsace, Burgundy and ruva Valley suffered from frosty mildew, white powder and other diseases. After July, the temperature continued to be low, which continued to have an adverse impact on grape vine flowering and berry ripening, The French Ministry of agriculture expects that the wine production will be significantly reduced by 24% to 30% in 2021, and the output is expected to rise from 3.26 billion liters to 3.56 billion liters.
The last time France suffered severe frost weather can be traced back to 2017. In that year, the output of French wine was about 3.76 billion liters, and the average output of French wine in recent five years was about 4.45 billion liters, accounting for about 17% of the world.
