Gavi DOCG vineyards suffer rain damage

Situation compounded by lack of electricity, Coldiretti says

(ANSA) - Alessandria, October 14 - Recent torrential rainfall and flooding in southern Piedmont has caused millions of euros of damage to vineyards producing the prestigious DOCG appellation Gavi white wine, farmers' association Coldiretti said on Tuesday.
    Over 10% of vineyards in the Gavi wine-growing area have been affected by the bad weather, the association added.
    "This extremely difficult situation is compounded by the lack of electricity which is causing serious problems for the conservation of grapes that have been harvested recently and stored in the wine cellars for the next stages in production," the Alessandria chapter of Coldiretti said.
    Fruit orchards and warehouses storing local products have also been damaged by water and mud, the association said.
