The French term for "table wine," vin de table is often referred to as vin ordinaire. Vin de table represents almost a quarter of all French wine produced. In fact, so much simple, low-quality wine is produced from high-yielding vineyards and varietals like Carignan, Aramon, and Alicante Bouschet that a vast quantity of it is distilled into alcohol for other uses—all of which lends credence to the saying "The French have the worst table wine in the world."
