Grapes grown for wine production are typically made into wine at or near the vineyard in which they were grown.
When hot, dry spells are followed by heavy rains, the rains frequently destroy grape crops.
Grapes that have matured in hot, dry weather make significantly better wine than ordinary grapes.

Tiger beetles are such fast runners that they can ...(Login to view remaining section)
When a prey insect is moved directly toward a beetle that has been chasing it, the beetle immediately stops and runs away without its usual intermittent stopping.
In pursuing a swerving insect, a beetle alters its course while running and its pauses become more frequent as the chase progresses.
In pursuing a moving insect, a beetle usually responds immediately to changes in the insect's direction, and it pauses equally frequently whether the chase is up or down an incline.
If, when a beetle pauses, it has not gained on the insect it is pursuing, the beetle generally ends its pursuit.
The faster a beetle pursues an insect fleeing directly away from it, the more frequently the beetle stops.
