The French vinters are saying "put a cork in it" to lawmakers who want to take the sparkle from the wine biz.

Here’s their problem: A court ruled that print stories on wine must contain health warnings -- not wine ads, but journalism about wine.

Beer and wine are already prohibited from being advertised on the web. The new laws will put wine in the same class as adult films, strictly limiting access to related websites.
