The wine industry is currently concerned at the intensity of the anti-alcohol lobby. And now we are not even talking about the confusing and demented proposed Liquor Bill.
Besides enforcing warning texts on bottles and advertisements, certain politicians are itching to ban certain forms of advertising altogether, such as bill-boards next to roads. Why these should be of particular concern, beats me. It’s not as if you are going to veer off the N1 to immediately satisfy the thirst created by the bill-board advertising ros+¬ sparkling, or such.
A much better place to start would be the idiots who sell wine in bottles bearing labels that are meant to be funny. Here we see that too much wine may get you pregnant, make more enemies, cause you to laugh at your own jokes, that sort of thing.
To make matters worse, these are sold in the heart of the Stellenbosch winelands, namely at the Mooiberge farmstall. Here wine is displayed without a semblance of culture and class, but more as an invitation to get pissed and laugh about it.
It is not the image wine wants ?+¦-+???+¦-ú?-¦?+¦-ú?+¦+¦ nor is it the image wine can afford right now. Product of this vile nature should be censored by the wine route, as well as the industry.
