Sacramento, CA — An early look at wine grape vineyards indicates yields could be lighter this season.
Surveyors say they see fewer wine grape clusters and the crop looks average to a little lighter is most areas.
The group Allied Grape Growers reports that “bunch counts” for most varieties stand 10 percent to 20 percent lighter than last year.
The first government estimate of the state´s grape crop is due next week.
