Finger Lakes wineries hard-hit by 'Polar Vortex'

Posted by Matt Ryan on



The Federal Government has declared 19 counties in and around the Finger Lakes disaster areas thanks to the  brutally cold winter brought on by the "Polar Vortex."  The famous wineries along Seneca and Cayuga Lakes have been hit hard, some losing anywhere from 50-100% of their crop.

This week in our Innovation Trail spotlight, we'll head down State Route 414 to see the extent of the damage and what kind of help is being offered to vineyard owners. Watch the full story above (18:26).
