EU plans to cut the funding that turns the French wine lake into Biofuel

The European Commission is introducing reform proposals with the hope of reducing the European wine lake to a trickle. In a move designed to encourage growers to get rid of bad-quality vineyards and replace them with good-quality ones, the aim is to stop the overproduction of millions of liters of low-quality wine in countries like France and Spain, which are currently bought using European taxpayers’ money and turned into biofuel. The proposals, which are being presented in June, aim to redirect the EU money to help producers grow and market wines of a quality that people will actually want to drink.
