FILE - This Sept. 4, 2012 file photo shows a worker collecting white grapes in the vineyards of the Chateau Haut Brion, a Premier Grand Cru des Graves, during the grape harvest in Pessac-Leognan, near Bordeaux, southwestern France. The European Union's farmers' union is warning that drought, cold and hail have conspired to produce the worst wine harvest for the region in up to half a century, according to Farmers Union expert Thierry Coste on Wednesday Oct. 17, 2012. The Champagne and Burgundy regions were hard hit by weather conditions that particularly affected the chardonnay grape. (AP Photo/Bob Edme, File) less
