Um, the article clearly states that organic wines tested positive too.

Take your junk "science" and kick rocks, Shorty.

Scarcely a day goes by without some scary story about glyphosate, the world’s most widely used herbicide. It is best known as the active ingredient in Monsanto’s “Roundup” which is used to kill weeds in fields planted with seeds that have been genetically engineered to produce crops that are resistant to glyphosate.
...
The fact is that such studies cannot be carried out ethically or logistically. Indeed the ADI is a guess, but an educated one. Even if it were off by a factor of a thousand, which is most unlikely, it would still mean that one could consume 1.9 Liters of that single sample of wine with the 18 ppb residue every day without a worry. And let’s keep in mind that alcohol is a known carcinogen, so it is actually of greater concern than the trace residues of glyphosate in wine.

Well I for one, was looking forward to getting rid of all the undesirable weeds growing in my stomach.
