They mate this year's harvest 300,000.000 to WO 000,000 liters larger than last year's. The harvest, nlrcadj- begun In the Midi, will continue into October tn Bordeaux and Burgundy regions. There arc several factors which obviate tho danger or overproduction. Vagaries or tha weather last year resulted In a short crop—between six and seven bUJIon liters. Against the shortage was a gain ot 100,000.000 .liters in the consumption of French wines. Meanwhile the stock on hand In the vineyards was reduced by 200,000,000 liters because 1933 wine was exceptionally good. There arc expectations.thati this year's wine will be as good as' Ihe quantity Is large. them.
