Proposed changes aim to provide wine producers and importers with more freedom

The government announced proposed changes to the retained EU laws on the production and marketing of wine on 21 May, which aim to boost the UK wine industry by £180m, open up the market to new products and cut unnecessary red tape for wine producers and importers. The changes being proposed by the government include removing certain packaging requirements, giving wine makers more freedom to pick from a wider range of vines and removing restrictions that prevent the wine industry from producing new blends.
