Amount, in billions of wine bottles, France’s 2016 harvest is expected to produce. Although it sounds like a lot of wine, the 2016 total is down 10% from the 2015 harvest, and 6% lower than France’s five-year average. Burgundy in particular faced its worst frost since 1981, causing some growers to lose more than 90% of their 2016 fruit. Bordeaux’s production, on the other hand, is up slightly. All things considered, 2016 will be known as one of France’s smallest wine harvests in 30 years.
