=2021 Wine grape harvest=
80% of French vineyards were impacted by spring frosts. It is estimated that 30% of the crop was damaged. Worst hit were Burgundy and Bordeaux. French government has declared frosts as an "agricultural disaster"  this year. (https://www.ewga.net/learn/news/item/the-2021-wine-harvest)

The other major region, Napa (California), was hit with an extended period of drought.

How does the harvest look this year?

=2021 Economics Nobel prize winners=
David Card, Joshua Angrist and Guido Imbens (https://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/economic-sciences/2021/summary/) were recognized for their work on "natural experiments/自然實驗". 
 
Blah blah blah.
 
What are some interesting things you can say about this year's winners at a dinner party?
