Say BYE BYE to bubbly! There’s a champagne shortage on the way

When a celebration rolls around, there's nothing better than a bottle of champagne to toast your good fortune with.

However, come the end of the year, there might not be any champers to drink.

According to Decanter, with a mix of bad weather, mildew and rot, French bubbly is going to have a shortage this year.

Frost that came late in the year has caused some wine and bubbly makers to lose around 70 percent of their crop. Not good.

There were also hail storms later than expected, and to make everything worse, that was followed by a mildew epidemic in July.

This means that the Champagne region, which usually has around 10,700kg per 100 acres, now only has 3,000kg per 100 acres.

I think it's time to stock up, lads.
