Have the recent storms caused any damage to California's grapevines?

Capital Public Radio's resident wine expert, Rick Kushman, joins Insight host Beth Ruyak for their monthly discussion of all things wine.

We'll hear why some wet weather is actually good for grapes, and he'll explain the history behind the Four Fires festival in Amador in early May. (Hint: it has to do with grapes and where they are grown regionally in the world.)
