BACK LABEL


Explanation:
Correcto el término en inglés, pero contraetiqueta no suena; entré porque me resultó curioso el término, yo reemplazaría contraetiqueta por etiqueta reversa ó contracara de la etiqueta.

category / heading / classification


Explanation:
Reading the sentence as a whole, it seems that the "(contra)etiqueta" refers not to any of the actual physical labels on the bottle, but rather to the commercial or official class or category to which the product belongs, as mandated by the government.

Loosely, "the wine will be placed on the market under the general heading [or "under the classification" or "in the category"] of wine and wine-growing."

(Strictly speaking, of course, wine isn't "grown." The _grapes_ are grown, but the wine is "produced.")

Hope this helps,
HC
