For the purposes of the wine law, a company that bottles wines or other containers and markets them under its name. According to the wine labelling law, the bottler is responsible for the content or product, even if he is not the producer. The name of the bottler and his company address must appear on the label. The references to the bottler (bottled) begin in other countries with Imbottigliato (Italian), mise en bouteille (French), Embottelado (Spanish) and Engarrafado (Portuguese). Within the EU, for non-quality wines (local wine, wine), this is not followed by the name of the bottler but, for example, by the code for a province (Italy) or a département (France). In Germany, the official test number includes the producer or bottler in the form of a numerical code. See also under producer bottling.
