Europe may rename its wines; it could be war

Barolo

     This may sound like inside baseball, but it may spur foodies and wine fans to start World War III. The European Common Market Organization is drawing up plans to replace current wine appellation systems with two standard Europe-wide denominations.
     It means, for example, that in Italy’s Piedmont region, what today are the Barolo, dolcetto and Barbera DOCs would be reduced to a single Barolo DOP.
     Wait’ll the French hear that they want to re-label Bordeaux. This is a war that even they could relish.
