The WSTA believes that the current wine labelling regulations, which have been automatically rolled over from EU law, are not fit for purpose now the UK has left the EU Internal Market.
The UK Government now has the opportunity to simplify these prescriptive and protectionist wine labelling rules. Bringing wine labelling more in line with labelling for all other food and drink products and introducing the requirement for labelling details of a responsible business address, would benefit both enforcement bodies, consumers and UK businesses alike.
This paper seeks to identify the key issues around wine labelling and the impact of rolling over the EU’s wine rules into UK law, and offer recommendations to Government.
