Big fines for France as the EU cracks down on mis-management of the wine sector. The fine will be three times the amount of money it is receiving in crisis distillation funding for appellation controlle wines amounting to €14.5m. The initial funds were to restructure and modernise vineayrds.
"The Commission carries out more than 200 inspections every year to make sure member states are spending CAP funding correctly. It even expects countries to track spending further down the line by using aerial or satellite photography to check fields.

The charge on France's wine sector is one of the biggest brought by the Commission this year and adds further evidence that it plans to get tough on the EU wine sector."
