World Wine Sales Brisk, but French Producers Hungover

Apart from the importance of exports, particularly to emerging markets, to producers, Vinexpo also tackled the issue of moderate drinking.

With France in the throes of campaigns to cut back drink-driving, a study by Educalcool, a Quebec based educational body, showed that over the last 20 years Quebecers are drinking less but better.

Educalcool said at a conference that its aim is to convince people that moderation is a rule without exception, or that "getting plastered even once is once too often".

As Bordeaux wine producer and owner of internationally known Chateau Angelus, Hubert de Bouard, put it: "Not many people drive home drunk on Petrus."

Much of the global wine and spirits industry remains wary that it may be taken down the same road as the tobacco industry and is in consequence keen to self-regulate and take responsible drinking seriously.
