labelling information



  • information printed on the label of a wine bottle. Some of the information is required by law, some is provided by the producer. The alcoholic content by volume and the volume of the wine contained in the bottle must be shown, and still wines usually include the year the grapes were picked, the name of the vineyard or estate, and the name of the importer or négociant. Wines from some countries also include the name of the village or appellation, the standard to which the wine was made or the grading supplied for the wine by the country’s quality standard, and the name of the predominant grape used in making the wine. Lastly, the label also includes the name of the importer. Some countries such as the US specify typography and also require that the label include a health warning and note the addition of sulphite.
