Commencing in 2009, the former VDP designation was replaced by IGP, and all country wines recognized on European level receive the IGP designation.
IGP Country wines are subject to verification of their yield, minimum alcohol content, lower volatile acidity, sulphur dioxide content, and are subject to control of organoleptic qualities by a special tasting commission.
