BULGARIA: Sparkling increase for EU wine exports
Sparkling wine companies in Bulgaria will be able to export more product to the EU under a new agreement.
In an accord signed in Brussels late last week, quotas on duty free imports of Bulgarian sparkling bottled wines into the EU were more than doubled to 4,200 hectolitres from the current 1,800 hectolitres.
The quota for bulk Bulgarian wine exports, however, remains unchanged at 195,000 hectolitres.
The agreement was signed by Stanislav Daskalov, head of the Bulgarian mission to the EU, and Gregor Woschnag, permanent representative of Austria in the EU.
The deal will be effective until Bulgaria accedes to the EU, at which point EU common market rules will be imposed on the Eastern European country.
