Maintaining the health of vineyards is a matter of perspective for one French wine region. France's Burgundy will soon begin scanning their crops for disease through the use of drones provided by aircraft giant Airbus through manufacturer Novadem.

Hood. Sipping wine while watching the clouds work their magic was actually just the beginning of a day—and evening—f... Read More
