The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is an EU policy that includes regulations for the wine sector, including labeling rules. The EU introduced the new wine labeling regulations on Jan. 1, 2023, with a grace period until Dec. 8, 2023.

Yes, these new requirements apply to all wines sold in the EU. This is regardless of their origin or production method.

Wine produced in or imported to the EU before Dec. 8, 2023, are exempt from new requirements, and you can continue to sell it until supplies run out. However, any new wine produced or imported after Dec. 8, 2023, must comply with the new regulations.

Winemakers will need to ensure that their wine bottles comply with the new requirements for selling their products in the EU market. They can list ingredients and nutrition information on wine labels or via QR code. However, they must list allergen and calorie information directly on the label.
