French Getting themselves in a spin
News that the French health ministry is planning to label all wines with a health warning has unsuprisingly gone down badly with producers, there are already plans for labels to be added warning pregnant woman of the dangers of drinking alcohol, and these plans take the same theme further to labels similar to those seen on cigarette packets. Roland Feredj of the Bordeaux Wine Trade Council said "You are trying to create an atmosphere of fear. But a policy of fear and bans does not work."
