Particularly in connection with hail, thunderstorms can cause great damage in the vineyard. The discharge of lightning occurs almost exclusively via the wires of the vine training systems and can thus affect entire rows of vines. The green shoots and leaves turn grey-green and dry out. Vines affected by lightning can die completely within a few days. Rain, storm and wind can also cause considerable damage, especially to young shoots. See also climate, precipitation and weather.
