The comprehensive wine trade deal recently concluded between the US and the European Union (EU), which has proved controversial in some corners of the EU drinks industry, has been formally approved by the EU Council of Ministers.

Once formal approval has come from the US Congress, it shall be deemed in force.

In a side agreement, the council accepted that, until both sides have approved the agreement, former EU-US wine agreements would remain in place, including derogations to allow the sale of wine made with oenological practices usually banned in the EU, such as using malic acid.
