Harsh Ohio winter damages wine industry

Published: Fri, April 25, 2014 @ 10:20 a.m.

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Ohio winemakers will ask for federal aid to help them recover after the harsh winter that all but wiped out many varieties of grapes.

A winter damage survey report from Ohio State University viticultural researchers says the extreme subzero temperatures devastated the 2014 vintage of some varieties of wines and caused around $4 million in damage to wineries in the state.

The Dayton Daily News reported that the frigid temperatures caused a projected loss of 97 percent of the 2014 crop of grape varieties of European heritage that are most well-known to consumers, such as chardonnay, riesling, cabernet franc and pinot noir.

Hmmm, so when something effects my business the gooberment is going to run in bail me out? I think not. What did these wine makers do with the money they made in previous years?

I have had more economic damage from the regulation of Ohio wineries by the Ohio Department of Agriculture than from the winter damage to my grapevines. For information on the unnecessary, duplicate, and discriminatory regulation of Ohio wineries by the Ohio Department of Agriculture or to support Ohio Senate bill 32, please see; www.facebook.com/FreeTheWineries or www.FreeTheWineries.com
