Plans for radical reform of Europe’s ailing wine sector will be debated openly by EU member states for the first time Tuesday, with opposing blocs already emerging. Agriculture ministers from the 25 EU members will tentatively discuss ways of re-launching EU wines on the home and world market.

Beverage Daily
"Debate on the shape and extent of that reform is likely to be fierce, however. The Commission has proposed to rip up 400,000 hectares of EU vines to drain the bloc's 1.5bn-litre wine lake. It also said it wanted to stop paying to distil wines that won't sell into undrinkable, industrial alcohol. Nearly half the EU annual wine budget, around €500m, is spent on this every year."
