Rioting winegrowers in the French region of Languedoc-Roussillon have caused over $1m of damage and five policemen have ended up in hospital, in demonstrations over the falling price of French wine. Over 8,000 growers converged on the French town of Nimes to protest at a drop of 30% in the price of Vin de Pays (VDP) and Vin de table (VDT) wines. A previous demonstration in December had gone peacefully but after a number of rousing speeches last week, the rioting began.
