Brussels, 27 October 2023 – The European Committee of Wine Companies (Comité Vins – CEEV) welcomes EU co-legislators provisional deal aimed at strengthening geographical indications (GIs) for wine, spirits and agricultural product. While still waiting for the publication of the final wording we believe the agreement will bring tangible benefits to wine GIs protection system while safeguarding wine specificities.
“EU wine companies welcome the political agreement on the revision of the EU GI system reached by EU co-legislators,” said Mauricio González Gordon, President of CEEV. “The deal will provide a solid and comprehensive approach for the reinforcement of the legal framework applying to GI wines. This approach will secure that EU quality scheme continues to offer a clear added value for the wine sector” he added.
