France has too much wine: vintners

The proposal, from the Confederation of French Wine Co-operatives, calls for permission to boil down 267 million bottles of wine for "crisis distillation."
Vintners boiled down almost the same amount of wine in 2002, but it was lower quality table wine. This proposal involves wines that carry the country's Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) – the highest grade for French wine.
