The European Union (EU) Agriculture Commissioner designate, Mariann Fischer Boel, has promised to analyse "in depth" the EU market organisation for wines, promising that significant problems would be addressed with reform proposals.

In answers to a European Parliament questionnaire, she signalled that, on her assuming office in November,  a review would not shy from importing ideas from outside the EU.

Existing European wine quality definition systems "are not always a guarantee for homogeneity, as expected by the consumers", Fischer Boel said, while "new wine-producing countries are more oriented towards information on varieties and their homogeneity".

Fischer Boel said EU wine market reforms "should certainly take this into account and develop a strategy that combines the strong elements of EU wine traditions with the necessary flexibility".
