Winery seeks exemption

Felton Road winery is pushing for a proposed law change after its Riesling missed out on the European market by 0.01% alcohol volume. Felton Road's 8.44% alcohol 2015 Riesling was prevented from being sold to Europe because of European Union (EU) trade regulations which state still wine must be at least 8.5% ABV (alcohol by volume). Felton Road winemaker Blair Walter said laws allowed rounding to the nearest 10th of a percent, meaning the Riesling missed out by 0.01%.
