French wine production will fall 12 percent this year after vines were damaged by spring frosts, drought and hail, but quality will remain generally good, the Agriculture Ministry said Tuesday. In its second estimate for 2019, the ministry forecast production of 43.4 million hectoliters, down from 49.4 million in 2018 when output had benefited from good weather condition. Champagne production this year is expected to drop 17 percent due mainly to hot weather, while Bordeaux output would shed 4 percent.
