Self-serve wine tanks have been popping up in supermarkets across France, and — regulations permitting — could make the trip across the pond within a year. How could the wine snob capital of the world allow this travesty?

“The cost-savings are passed on to the consumer in the form of low prices of 1.45 euros/liter (about $2/liter).

The wines vary; one is a 2009 from the Rhone, technically a vin de pays méditerranée.”
