French winemakers have announced they will be turning unsold wine into hand sanitiser.

Wine sales and exports in France plunged at the height of the coronavirus crisis, leaving winemakers with millions of litres of unsold wine.

France was in lockdown for 2 months.

The Government has given permission for 33 licensed wine makers to make hand sanitizer.

Each winemaker has up until June 19 to indicate the amount he or she wishes to make.
