The European Union's financial watchdog, the Court of Auditors, has attacked the European Commission for paying grants for grubbing up vineyards, with a view to reducing the size of the EU wine lake, while continuing to subsidise replanting. Its criticisms of this "shortcoming" of "grubbing up which occurs at the same time as vines are replanted" is highlighted in the Court's latest annual 1999 report.
