Wine Law in Context

D'Arcy Hooper

The University of Reims renowned Wine Law programme hosts the Wine Law in Context seminar series. John Barker’s contribution, Sectoral and Government Interaction in the International Regulation of Wine, explores the interaction between the sector and government across the web of institutions using two case studies specifically related to rules regarding oenological practices: the World Wine Trade Group Mutual Acceptance Agreement on Oenological Practices; and the OIV-led initiative regarding winemaking additives in China.  For a copy of the paper CLICK HERE.
