World 2017 Wine Production Falls, but Probably Not in Virginia

The International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV - Organisation Internationale de la Vigne et du Vin) announced an 8% decrease in world wine production for 2017. They also noted that production in the United States is projected to fall much less, only by 1%. This, however, does not include the impact of California's fires. Meanwhile in Virginia, several wineries are reporting larger than normal harvests for 2017.
