Local vineyard owners wary of warm weather

Breinigsville, Pa. - Wine-making is a growing business in Pennsylvania but the unseasonably warm weather is making some vineyard owners nervous.

"I love summer weather but the plants don't at this stage in the game," said John Skrip of Clover Hill Vineyards and Winery in Breinigsville.

Skrip says weeks of unseasonably warm temperatures could cause the grape vines to ripen too early.

He says a few days of above average temperatures aren't cause for concern but he is keeping a close eye on this vineyard.

"Hopefully the weather will cool down and won't push the plants too fast," Skrip said.
