WWTG Members Complete Signature of Labeling Agreement

Members of the World Wine Trade Group met on January 23, 2007, in Canberra, Australia, to complete signature of the Agreement on Requirements for Wine Labelling, which had previously been initialed in September 2006. The agreement, as mentioned earlier, will enable wine exporters to sell wine into WWTG markets without having to redesign their labels for each individual market. It will allow the placement of four items of mandatory information (country of origin, product name, net contents and alcohol content) anywhere on a wine bottle label, provided they are presented in a single field of vision. A link to the WWTG press release can be found on the TTB website, under the WWTG section, which can be accessed here.
