France increases its aid to the sector up to € 250 million. The sector has been hit hard by the coronacrisis so the question is, for a large part of it is lost.
the French prime minister, Jean Castex said Wednesday during a visit to the vineyards of Menetou-Salon and Sancerre, the region of the Loire valley.
In may, it offered to the French government, and the growers a helping hand. There was a 140 million euro was allocated in order to be able to do that out of the surplus wine hand gel was made. There was, as a result of the coronacrisis a lot of demand for it.
