Winemageddon - Spanish tankers attacked in France with 70,000 litres ruined
[link to www.dailymail.co.uk]

Frederic Rouanet, president of the wine producers in the south-west Aude department, confirmed that four tankers were emptied, with 70,000 litres of wine wasted.

His fellow protesters scrawled graffiti on the side of the Spanish trucks, with slogans including ‘wine not compliant’ – they believe the Spanish wine is sub-standard and not produced in accordance with European regulations.

Mr Rouanet said: ‘We’ve been checking the wine coming in for a month, but nobody cares. Today we got tough.’

The protest comes after industry figures showed that France is now the biggest buyer of Spanish wine – purchasing 580million litres in 2014, a 40 per cent rise on 2013.

France has also lost its status as the world’s biggest wine producer. Last year Italy produced 4,900million litres compared with 4,700million litres in France.

it's not Sharia compliant - that is the meaning, not that it's sub-par.

Open your eyes.

as much as I like France, it is their wine that is substandard. Everything tastes the same, they have this horrible habit of mixing wine of different producers to 'improve' it.

While you'd have to pay a fortune for wine from a single vineyard in France, in Moravia, or Hungary it is basically a norm that every quality wine comes from a single vineyard, even single plot!!

He's just jealous. Some of my favorite affordable wines these days are from Spain; the French ones I've been trying here lately at a similar price point are all crap.
I'm a little verklempt. Talk amongst yourselves.
