One winery is saying this may affect how much they pay for one type of grape, but don't worry, it won't hurt your pocket.According to winemakers at Four Daughters winery in Spring Valley, the harsh weather impacted the damage-susceptible Edelweiss grape, used in one of the winery's most popular wines, Chad's Folly.
The Edelweiss grape accounts for around fifteen percent of the winery's production, and they source from other farmers. The demand has been high. One winemaker at the vineyard says one of their providers called Thursday morning to say they had to Edelweiss this year.
"Right down here, this is called the fruiting wire, and normally there are supposed to be grapes every step of the way there. There are none here. So, this is an example of the kind of damage that the cold can do," says winemaker, Justin Osborne as he examines one of the vines.
