Andreas, Schuylkill County- Area wineries are feeling the squeeze after a harsh winter on their wine crops.

               Galen Glen Winery in Andreas,  lost about an acre of their vines this winter. 
               The Schuylkill County winery has 20 acres of vines, which will enable them to produce a healthy product this year.
                Wine maker ,Sarah Troxell says unlike many wineries in Erie and New York, they only suffered minor damage and will produce a healthy product this year
However, with a late spring , and now a another cold winter predicted ...   Next years product is still unknown.
Troxell says  she expects costs of wine and grapes to be on  rise in areas out of state , but not here in Pennsylvania.
