EU: Wine labelling laws amended
Third country wine producers will be allowed to use "traditional expressions" to sell their products in the EU provided they meet a number of conditions including a requirement that the traditional expression is "distinctive", is recognised and governed in the third country and has been used for at least ten years.
In an amendment to its wine labelling regulations the European Commission says terms which were exclusively reserved for EU wines such as 'vin jaune', 'amarone', 'amontillado' and 'ruby' will be accepted for wines made in third countries provided the Commission and the individual member states agree that all the conditions have been met.
