The US Treasury Department has begun a review of the laws governing wine labelling.

The review will include an examination of the potential for mandatory nutrition and ingredient information, including processing aids.

According to local California newspaper the Sacremento Bee, the review will also include discussions on wine advertising, and whether that should face new labelling requirements.

Officials will also consider matching US labelling standards with those of other countries, including the EU; debate a proposed "alcohol facts" box for each label, listing data such as alcohol content expressed in fluid ounces; and evaluate permitting voluntary listing of protein and carbohydrate content.

The industry and public has until June 28 to comment.
