New EU rules for Organic Wine

New EU rules for organic wine have been announced.  As from the 2012 harvest, qualifying growers will be able to use the term “organic wine” on their labels.  Labels must show the EU-organic logo and the code number of their certifier, and must respect other wine labelling rules.  (Although there are already rules for “wine made from organic grapes”, these do not cover wine-making practices, i.e. the whole process from grape to wine.)
