Frog YOU, France...
US boycott costs French wine exporters $165m
Americans boycotting French wine in anger at that country's opposition to the Iraq war probably cut sales by US$112 million ($165 million), says a new study.
Keep drinking American, you people!!!
In the meantime I found some wonderful substitutes: one of which is Gruet sparkling wine made in NEW MEXICO. Wonderful!!! and reasonably priced. They can't call it champagne because there is a rule that if it is not made in a certain area of France in a certain way, it can't be labeled as such. But it's the same thing.
Viva La USA!
I'd also like to say that we really DO have better prices for comparable worth in US wines.
Paying through the nose does NOT make it "better", for sure.
