Icewine

In 2001, the EU Commission approved Canadian "Icewine" under the English name for the EU market. The designation is protected on the European market and may only be used for this dessert wine. The Icewine from Germany and Austria as well as the German designation referring to it are also protected. A prerequisite for the admission of Canadian ice wine to the European market was Canada's decision in summer 2000 to introduce uniform standards for the production of ice wine. Germany, Austria and Canada had previously agreed on such a standard. At the same time, this opened up future access to the Canadian market for German and Austrian producers of ice wine.
