World Wine Trade Group Agreement On Requirements For Wine Labelling

WWTG also provides an invaluable platform for information exchange and coordination of positions on trade barriers. The usual themes are: trends in wine production, consumption and trade; developments in wine regulation and labelling, intellectual property and sustainability; Changing winemaking practices bilateral and regional trade negotiations; and wine issues in multilateral for a such as Codex Alimentarius, OIV and the WTO. The labelling agreement means that consumers are able to easily locate important information about the bottle in a single field of view, making it easy to compare different wines. In addition, the agreement benefits producers and suppliers by reducing production, application, storage and labelling costs. Gains can be achieved through economies of scale and savings from label printing costs and production costs (due to reduced downtime). These principles provide a positive benchmark for wine labelling and promote clarity and consistency of information presented in different markets. These principles could form the basis of a global standard if adopted by sufficient international bodies and countries, since the Codex Alimentarius Committee does not have an international standard for wine labelling. For more information about the group, see: www.trade.gov/td/ocg/wwtg.htm World Wine Trade Group (WWTG) is a group of government and industry representatives from wine-producing countries such as Argentina, Australia, Canada, Chile, Georgia, New Zealand, South Africa, the United States and Uruguay. The group, established in 1998, aims to facilitate international wine trade through the exchange of information, discussion of regulatory issues in wine markets and common measures to remove trade barriers. WWTG negotiated three agreements and an agreement to promote international wine trade. The group is inspired by principles that facilitate the trade in wine and protect consumers, which benefits both wine-exporting and importing countries. WWTG recognizes the specifics of each regulatory system and works on mutual acceptance of practices and labelling, rather than imposing a single regulatory approach.
