Wine Law

geographical indications and traditional terms in the wine sector, the objection procedure, amendments to product specifications, the register of protected names, cancellation of protection and use of symbols. We are, therefore, in a proper “jungle” of laws, regulations and other legal figures, at the international, EU, national and regional levels, which require a multidisciplinary and multinational treatment, as is done in this book. Looking at the table of contents, it can be seen that essential topics are covered, for instance, designations of origin, brand names, labelling and packaging, advertising, consumer protection and marketing. The inclusion of chapters with references to national legal systems, apart from those of European Union countries, such as Argentina, Cuba, Peru, Russia and Venezuela, also seems to me to be a good thing. I hope that this collaboration between the academic institutions of Spain, France and Portugal will serve to further strengthen our ties of friendship with the academic institutions of all countries.
