Wine law; notification of oenological treatments and the production and bottling of local wine and varietal/vintage wine.
Certain oenological treatments, as well as the production and bottling of country wine and varietal/vintage wine must be reported.
According to Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/33, control procedures are also required for wines with a protected geographical indication (in Germany " Landweine") as well as varietal/vintage wines ("Deutscher Wein").
The permissibility of marketing these wines also depends on whether the relevant EU control requirements are met. This includes the inclusion of all producers and bottlers in a control system.
The Bavarian regulations required for implementation will be issued soon. In order to prevent possible problems in marketing, all Bavarian producers and bottlers of country wine and varietal/vintage wine are recommended, if they do not yet have a company number, to apply for one from us and to notify the production and bottling to their responsible district office or their responsible independent city.
For the required notification(s), a correspondingly extended notification form for the oenological treatments is available here (see under Forms).
Notifications under the wine law must be made to the competent district administrative authority.
The advance notification must be made before the wines are produced or bottled.
Please select a location in "Localization" so that the address of the responsible authority can be filled in.
