Révolte des Vignerons

Levitt‘s cheap wine advocacy may have met its match. To protest the falling price of wine, a French group calling itself the Regional Union for Viticultural Action has attacked French supermarkets in the past. Now it has adopted a more supply-side approach: the wine militants recently broke into a cooperative in the south of France, emptying vats of wine containing the equivalent of 1.2 million bottles of red, white, and rosé. They are demanding an end to overproduction across Europe. [%comments]
