Need to Know Rochester: Winery Survives Freak Hailstorm
One family’s livelihood was nearly wiped out in a ten minute hailstorm that shattered the calm of the normally placid and beautiful Finger Lakes.
WXXI's Steve Dawe talks with Cayuga Ridge Estates owner Tom Challen about recovering from the storm that destroyed most of his 2012 grape crop.
The story is followed by a discussion of the Finger Lakes Wine year as a whole between WXXI News Director Julie Philipp and Jim Trezise of the NY Wine & Grape Foundation.
