U.S.-EU Wine Trade Issues
The U.S. and the EU are in the process of negotiating a bilateral agreement on wine. Exports of U.S. wine to the EU continue under derogations permitting certain U.S. oenological practices, which would otherwise be prohibited. The derogation for U.S. wine making practices and certification was set to expire in December 2003 (Council Regulation 1037/2001). On December 17, 2003, the EU Agriculture Council approved a two-year extension to the U.S. derogation on wine-making practices, until December 31, 2005 at the latest or until the entry into force of a bilateral agreement (Council Regulation 2324/2003). Two additional derogations on labeling (Commission Regulation 2303/2003) and documentation (Commission Regulation 2338/2003) were also extended until December 31, 2005 (also see GAIN report E23247).
In May 2002, the European Commission adopted new rules for the labeling of wine (Commission Regulation 753/2002). These rules lay down what information must be shown on wine labels and regulates the use of certain optional terms such as productions methods, traditional expressions, names of the vineyard and vintage year. The new regulation also introduced arrangements for the protection of certain traditional expressions linked to an EU geographical origin, e.g. “ruby” for port from Portugal and reserved certain bottle types for certain types of wine. The new regulation was originally scheduled to enter into force on January 1, 2003, but was postponed until February 1, 2004, to allow third country wine producers to comply with the new EU wine labeling requirements.
