Grape harvest set for a bumper cop

On the upside – there always is an upside you just have to look hard enough – all this hot weather in Ukraine has boosted grape quality.

The vice president of the Association of Grape Growers and Wine Makers of Ukraine, said "the hot, sunny summer is conducive to the formation of a large quantity of sugars in the grapes" and "in general, the quality of the grape harvest this year should be high.”

Ukraine may gather 300,000MT of grapes this year.

Cheers, hic…
