Wine classifications by EU country

Since European wines are among the oldest and most widespread GIs, they are many people’s first exposure to GI systems. The Geographical Indication shown on the label of wines must meet the requirements set out by specific production regulations as a well as legislation. Many old world wine classification systems indicate the geographical location wine must be produced in, along with standards such as grape variety, acidity, alcohol content and ageing. Only wine adhering to these precise regulations can be labelled with the respective producing country’s wine GIs.
