Mislabelled wine costs exporter its licence

An exporter of Australian wine labelled as Pinot Grigio that was in fact three other grape varieties, has been stripped of its export licence by the Australian Grape and Wine Authority (AGWA). Dal Broi Wines (DBW), parent company of Griffith-based Southern Estate Wines, failed to win a stay application against the licence cancellation, which the company said had already cost it a contract with US drinks giant Constellation Brands. Dal Broi had exported two parcels of wine, one to Canada in mid to late March 2015 and one to the USA in October 2014, which it described as 2014 Pinot Grigio.
