Hitler wine protest.
Justice Minister Brigitte Zypries has written to express displeasure over labels which show Hitler giving the stiff-armed Nazi salute and also feature SS leader Heinrich Himmler.
Emblazoned on the bottles are the words Sieg Heil and Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Fuehrer (one people, one nation, one leader).
Winemaker Andrea Lunardelli claims there is big demand for his Hitler wine and that up to 30,000 bottles are produced and sold each year mainly at petrol stations and tourist areas in Italy.
