'Wine of Vardar River Valley' to slow down Macedonian wine exports.
Under the regulations, the Macedonian wine intended for export to the eurozone should have the euro 1 certificate as evidence that it originates in Macedonia. Under the European wine rules, classification is made by the origin of wine and the geographical indication. In Macedonia's case, what may cause a problem is the origin. Macedonian wine is currently being exported as Macedonia-made. Wine bottles will hereafter state two things: Wine of Vardar River Valley and Produced in Macedonia.
Greece registered part of its wine with the European Commission with the Macedonia geographical indication as early as 1989.
