Wine industry label rule change push to show who, or what, is really behind the brand

FAMILY-run wineries have cautiously welcomed a federal government review into the grape and wine industry. Among recommendations in the Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport References Committee report, released on Friday, was to change laws so labels showed if wine brands were owned or controlled by a major retailer – such as Woolworths or Coles. The two supermarket giants operate liquor outlets such as Dan Murphy’s, BWS and First Choice Liquor and promote their labels prominently.
