Today's weather trivia: 14 December

2007: In 2007 vintners in Kelowna, BC, completed the icewine harvest after
temperatures dipped below -8°C. Early-season harvesting limits cluster
dropping and reduces the time vines are exposed to predators. The Vintner's
Quality Alliance requires a temperature of at least -8° for icewine grapes
to be picked.
