Moderation will be key message of European drink plan

Ambassadors across the drinks trade will push sensible drinking messages as part of a Europe-wide wine plan announced this week. Winemakers, marketers and retailers will all be involved in the campaign.

The European Wine Plan will see a Wine Information Council set up to provide scientific advice and information to all sectors of the industry.

An education campaign called Arts de Vivre will push moderate drinking as part of a healthy lifestyle.
