Growing Grapes in Central Oregon
Cold air is heavier than warmer air so if there is no wind to keep the air churning, the cold air sinks to the lowest places in the vineyard, thus frost will develop there first. Hillsides are always preferred for growing grapes for this very reason as well as aspect to the sun. Dew point and Humidity also play a roll in when frost will occur as well as temperature.
