The use of terms that refer to a farm or winery may be regulated by the EU member states themselves. In Austria, the following guideline applies to the use of the terms winery and winegrower on labels: The possibility of use is given if wine is produced in a company-owned winery from grapes from the company's own cultivated land, including leased land. Under certain conditions, this also applies to cultivation contracts and pure grape or wine purchases. See also producer and producer bottling. Other terms used in other countries are azienda vinicola (Italy), château and domaine (mainly France) and estate (New World). There are descriptions of around 2,500 wineries from around 50 countries on all five continents, including their history, grape varieties, vineyards and sites (vineyards), highlights from the vineyard and cellar technology as well as premium wines. These are listed under the wine-growing countries and/or their regions/areas.
