Country wine

Designation for a wine of the second quality level after the first level of quality wine. As a result of the EU wine market regulation valid from August 2009, Landwein now corresponds to the category "PGI wine" (wine with a protected geographical indication) after the first category "wine PDO" (wine with protected designation of origin = quality wine). The old terms "Landwein", " Qualitätswein " and " Prädikatswein" are still permitted as "traditional indications", which is regulated on a country-specific basis (they are still used in Germany, Austria and other countries). See in detail under Quality System.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
