EU: Greece granted wine crisis distillation move
Greece is placing 340,000 hectolitres of table wine and 40,000 hectolitres of quality wine into crisis distillation after "abundant production" led to a collapse in prices and a worrying rise in stocks, the European Commission said.
The wine may no longer be sold for drinking but only used for industrial purposes or as biofuel.
In April, Brussels permitted 1.5m hectolitres of quality wine in France and 4m hectolitres of table wine in Spain to qualify for crisis distillation.
