FILE - In this Sept. 19, 2006, file photo, workers collect red grapes in the vineyards of the famed Chateau Haut Brion, a Premier Grand Cru de Graves, during the grape harvest in Pessac-Leognan, near Bordeaux, southwestern France. Drinking a Bordeaux from a ''chateau'' is as French as apple pie is American.

Next week, EU experts will look whether it should permitted with a fight among member states set for later this year, well after the wine harvest. (AP Photo/Bob Edme, File)
