What's In Your Wine? (2008)
Channel 4 Dispatches
Jane Moore investigates the recent wine scandals in Italy, France and South Africa which have tarnished the image of the industry, and reveals how hard it is to be sure a bottle of wine is good value for money. Moore conducts her own champagne taste test, with surprising results, and visits the vineyards of Champagne where she discovers that Parisian rubbish had been used as soil fertiliser for decades, remnants of which can still be seen littering the landscape in some areas.

With wine consumption in the UK hitting record levels, Jane Moore investigates the many different substances - including fish and dairy products - that can be used to produce wine but which rarely appear on the label of the average bottle.
The health benefits of the occasional glass of red wine are widely-acknowledged but Dispatches reveals how a great deal of the wine we consume is enhanced, sweetened or flavoured, creating a drink that one critic describes as no better than, 'an alcoholic cola'.
