Grape grower and winemaker Luca Ferraro posted this image on his Instagram at roughly noon local time.

“Dacci oggi il nostro panico quotidiano,” he wrote, “Give us our daily panic today.”

The following screenshot was taken at roughly 2 p.m. local time. Rain is forecast for upcoming days as well.

2014 could possibly be the rainiest vintage in our lifetime. And sadly, as Luca writes with characteristic honestness and earnestness, on his Instagram, it could be “disaster” for growers like him.
