Italian-grown grapes make Italian Frizzante in Germany
A


A court in Germany has come to the decision that sparkling wine produced in Germany with Italian prosecco grapes can be labelled as an Italian wine. An administrative tribunal in Trier ruled that if the base wine imported into Germany is labelled IGT (Indicazione Geographica Tipica) indicating its origin, this mention of origin can be retained even after its transformation into a sparkling wine. This decision will allow two companies in the Trier region to continue their production and sale of sparkling wines labelled ‘Vino frizzante IGT’, as they use Italian wines as their base. These two companies had had their production blocked by the Rhineland-Palatinate wine inspectorate, which argued the label IGT was an indication of origin and could therefore not be applied to a product put together outside its country of origin.
