Bordeaux vineyards decimated by hail

Some French wine producers may have to declare bankruptcy in latest blow to already frail industry.

    Not a single grape remains on some vines in France's Bordeaux region after a hail storm over the weekend.

    Many winemakers will not be able to produce wine at all this autumn.

    This latest blow to the already frail industry means some producers may have to declare bankruptcy.
