Etiketteninfo

Visitenkarte des Weines

Labels should, by few, terms, provide information to the consumer about origin, quality and special features.
The label is something like the identity card of the wine. But, about what does it actually provide information? Some labels demand the reader’s attention enormously: vintage, name of producer, bottler, community, site, vine variety, quality level, flavour – for the connoisseur, all these specifications, may be helpful information, for the not (yet) adept, they rather present a mystery.



The most important and obligatory specifications on the label:
- Quality level
- Bottler or Producer
- with German and Austrian wines: the official checking number. With quality wines, producer or bottler. 
- Country of origin
- Region of origin
- Filling quantity
- since 1987 actual alcohol content (in the EU)
