In France today, by law, wine is considered a degrading drug, a dangerous one.
I believe wine is a civilized thing, a beautiful element of culture, a way to reach yourself and others.
Through this post, along with all other French wine bloggers today, I would like to draw your attention to this problem. If we let judges destroy our beautiful culture of wine, here’s what the world of wine on the internet in France will look like tomorrow: www.le-vin-sur-internet.fr
Wine is a beautiful thing.
We should teach people the sense of good taste, moderation and refinement – not hit with debilitating oppression. It is the responsibility of French politicians today to support the French wine industry, to stop criminalizing wine drinkers and wine lovers.
I hereby, in the name of wine drinkers from all countries, invite French politicians to amend la Loi Evin to offer a more decent legal existence to the culture of wine in France.
And thus to allow the survival of the richness and diversity of French wine production.
Yes… France as a country has become that stupid that it does not stand for its wine industry – you read well!
