Vineyards under snow. Snow in the vineyards is not necessarily a good thing. Quite the contrary actually. When it is snowing it is usually not very cold. It is the very cold weather that can be dangerous for the vines. In addition, the snow can be somewhat of an insulation against too cold ground temperature. It also adds water to the ground, slowly, as the snow melts, which can be good for the wines. Much better than heavy rain which can cause soil erosion in the vineyard.
