Rain and hail has affected grape harvesting but an increase in export values is encouraging

Recent wet weather has caused problems for grape growers who are now racing the clock to complete their harvest. Bruno Brombal, chairman of the Riverina Wine Grape Marketing Board, said the rain and hail had a “big impact” on growers. “If we had another week of rain we could have been in big strife,” Mr Brombal said. “There could have been major losses in the region, not as bad as the Hunter Valley but close.”
