EU: Brussels hands out fresh wine grants
The European Commission has announced its latest batch of grants for promoting wine sales within the EU.
Brussels has decided to award grants to Spain and Hungary for the next three years while Italy has been given a two-year grant.
Spain's Institut del Cava has been given EUR909,794 (US$1.2m), while the Commission has awarded Hungary's Tokai wine federation Tokaj Vinum Hungaricum Egyesület EUR556,749.
The Commission has also awarded Italy a two-year grant. The country's National Confederation for Voluntary Consortia for the Oversight of the Denominations of Origin (FEDERDOC) has been awarded EUR442,250.
As usual, the EU funding has to be matched by funds from the relevant national governments and private sector interests and be spent on Commission-approved information, PR and marketing campaigns.
