  • About

quality wine is an expression widely and loosely used for any wine of good quality and was, until 2008, an official wine category throughout the eu, and therefore throughout most of Europe. It has been superseded by the pdo and pgi categories. Similarly, everything else, called ‘table wine’ in its strict pre-2008 EU sense, has been superseded by the cumbersome but clear wine without geographical indication.
