Wine terror, not terroir

Terroir (tehr-whar) is a French term used for growing conditions of wine grapes. That is, the soil, climate, and topography where the grapes are grown.

But we're talking about wine terror here. Apparently a group of "wine militants" bombed a building used by France's ruling Socialist Party. They are unhappy with the cheap foreign imports. Hmm, I recall Detroit being unhappy with cheap foreign imports back in the 1970s, but I don't recall any bombings. I say, "Get bombed, don't plant bombs."
