Designation for the lowest wine quality level within the EU (colloquially also table wine). In August 2009, a new EU wine market regulation came into force, which brought serious changes to wine quality levels and wine designations. Among other things, the term "table wine" was eliminated or banned and replaced by "wine". See in detail under quality system.
There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.Sigi Hiss
