In recent days, many regions of the country have been affected by frost. They caused winemakers in the Lubuskie Voivodeship to suffer huge losses. The bushes were frozen and there was no way to warm them.

The night frosts that we have recorded in recent days have caused winemakers in the Lubuskie Voivodeship to suffer huge losses. The bushes are frozen and the harvest this year will be very poor. The night from Monday to Tuesday was crucial for winemakers. – It froze so hard that night that the bushes could not be saved. In some places it was even -8/-7 degrees, said Nadia Rulak, TVN24 reporter. She added that the frosts caused huge losses.

– At such a low temperature, all methods fail, both burning candles and releasing heat from the ground – said Katarzyna Żelazna from Winnica Żelazny. – What I found here is a very sad picture. Three days earlier it was green and blooming, and then when I arrived it was gray and brown. Frozen vines look like burnt, she added.

Vines are sensitive to frost

Vines are very sensitive to frost. – This frost ruined what winemakers from the Lubusz Voivodeship would have harvested this fall – noted Rulak.

Krzysztof Fedorowicz from Winnica Miłosz said that the losses would be huge. – Of course, there will be some fruit, but it will be 5-10 percent of what in a normal year. The financial losses will be very large, he said. – I planted vineyards in 2004, we had such a frost in 2011, so it doesn't happen very often – he added.
