Drought hits Tuscany’s famed wine crop
The drought is taking a toll on Tuscany’s famed wine production.
Farmers in the area are battling to salvage as much as they can of this year’s crop. The lack of rain is now beginning to affect the plants that usually thrive in hot and dry conditions, and bunches of grapes are ripening earlier and smaller than expected.
In 2020, the U.S. imported more than $2 billion worth of wine from Italy.
