Authenticity

Knowing where your wine comes from and who makes it is of interest to many consumers.

Information

Some consumers may be interested in wines which for example are organic or biodynamic or are suitable for vegetarians or vegans. Since 2012 more information on allergies has been required on wine labels. If wines are served by the glass this information also needs to be available to the consumer.

Here are two of many examples which are suitable for vegetarians or vegans.
