Less rain brings better tasting wine

(WTVR) - The drought this summer means good news for wine makers in California.  They say the weather conditions will make smaller berries with more sugar in them, which could produce very good wine.

Too much rain could dilute the flavor of the grapes.  It can also bring in mildew and other things that could affect the size of the fruit.

Wine makers say the smaller the grapes means less wine production, but it will produce higher quality of wine.
