New Requirements in EU for Coding and Marking on Wine Labels

Marking on Wine Labels from December 2023

Starting December 2023, it became a legal requirement to provide a range of information on all wine bottles.

As a beverage producer, it is now mandatory to include nutrition declaration and allergens directly on the wine label. Additional information can be conveyed through a QR code on the label, directing to a website with the details, or simply included direct on the label.


The new wine labels in the EU must include information such as:

  • Grape category
  • PDO/PGI designation
  • Alcohol percentage
  • Origin
  • Bottler/Producer/Retailer name
  • Net content
  • Sugar content (for sparkling wines)
  • Nutrition declaration
  • Ingredient list
  • Allergens
  • Minimum durability date for non-alcoholic grape products


These comprehensive labels aim to provide consumers with maximum transparency in choosing and purchasing wine. The regulations apply to wines and wine products harvested from 2024 onwards. Wines produced before December 8, 2023, are exempt until stocks are depleted.

Regardless of the solution you choose, we at Wichmann Systems Ltd. can assist you in finding a solution that meets the new requirements for wine labels.
