It caused a certain brouhaha when an ”investigative” television program on wine was aired recently in Sweden, Kalla Fakta (Cold Facts). Several wine producers and wine importers appeared in the program in a way that can best be described as misleading or manipulative.

The program talked about treatments in the vineyard showing as “scandalous” agricultural practices that are well-known and hardly any news (nor particularly outrageous).

They also talked about “additives” in wines giving the impression that wine is to a large extent a concoction of various more or less dangerous foreign ingredients to create artificial flavours.
