There’s more calls from the Wine industry to fight moves by the European Union to claim ownership of the word ‘Prosecco’.
Australian Grape and Wine (AG&W) says it’s the second time the E-U’s tried to stop Australian companies from using the name on of sparkling wines.
Lee Mclean of AG&W said “Prosecco is a grape variety, just like Shiraz is, just like chardonnay is. We need to make sure that Australian producers maintain that right to use the grape variety name on their labels.”
Some members of the wine industry are calling for the Federal Government to step in.
