A row over a winery horse has spent five years going through the French courts

September 23, 2019

The neighbor lost the initial case in the Alsace courts, but went to the appeal court to argue that the smell and the flies made life "impossible" for his clients and also argued that the horse wasn't necessary, as the vineyards could be harvested by machine. He also argued that "there are many organic winegrowers who do not own a horse".
