Comunicado Oficial 

World Wine Trade Group Twentieth Year Anniversary Commemoration Statement Neuquén, Argentina, 15 November 2018. The World Wine Trade Group (WWTG) has become a global leader on issues related to wine trade since its inception in 1998. Over this two-decade period, the WWTG has worked to facilitate international trade in wine, while ensuring regulators can appropriately protect consumers, through information sharing, discussion of regulatory issues in wine markets and joint actions for the removal of trade barriers. Its nine members (Argentina, Australia, Canada, Chile, Georgia, New Zealand, South Africa, the United States and Uruguay) are responsible for approximately 30% of world wine exports, 31% of world wine production and 27% of global wine consumption. Wine exports from WWTG countries accounted for 8.4 billion USD in 2017.
The inter-action between government and industry in the WWTG has contributed to the uniqueness and success of the Group. Through their joint action, the WWTG has made significant achievements that facilitate international trade in wine. These achievements include: the Agreement on Mutual Acceptance of Oenological Practices; the Agreement on Requirements for Wine Labelling and its Protocol; the Memorandum of Understanding on Certification Requirements; and the Arrangement on Information Exchange, Technical Cooperation and Counterfeiting. Coupled with the WWTG’s Regulatory Principles that aim to facilitate wine trade for the benefit of both wine exporting and importing countries, these documents are at the core of its activities.


The WWTG advocates for a successful, competitive, and growing global wine industry, operating in international markets; and for the removal of trade distortions and the elimination of unjustified or unnecessary barriers to trade. With this objective, the WWTG recognizes the unique characteristics of each country’s regulatory system and advances the mutual acceptance of winemaking practices and harmonization of labelling regulations, rather than the imposition of prescriptive regulatory approaches.
Outreach to non-member wine producing and consuming countries is a key component of the WWTG. The  Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Wine Regulatory Forum (WRF), a group which seeks to eliminate barriers to trade in wine among APEC economies, has its origins in the WWTG, and the International Wine Technical Summit builds off the WWTG Tbilisi and Cape Town Regulatory Principles. The WWTG’s recognition of wine as a microbiological low risk food product has also been accepted by these groups.
The WWTG is reviewing its objectives and activities to ensure that it remains focused on current and anticipated challenges in international wine trade. Governments and industries from wine producing countries interested in attending a future meeting of the WWTG are invited to contact the current Chair at:

El Grupo Mundial de Comercio del Vino (GMCV) es una agrupación de países productores de vino que comprende Argentina, Australia, Canadá, Chile, Georgia,  Nueva Zelanda, Sudáfrica y Estados Unidos de América. Con frecuencia, otros países envían representantes a las reuniones del GMCV en calidad de observadores, tal como ocurrió inicialmente con México, Brasil y Uruguay. El grupo reúne representantes de la industria y de los gobiernos con el fin de trabajar de manera conjunta para facilitar el comercio internacional de vinos

El grupo representa casi la cuarta parte de las exportaciones mundiales de vinos y además incluye a uno de los mayores importadores mundiales, como es Estados Unidos, de allí la importancia del mismo y de los acuerdos que en dicho marco se puedan alcanzar.

Los principales  objetivos propuestos son:

• Desarrollar el comercio internacional del vino y facilitar el acceso a los mercados.

• Examinar los asuntos emergentes y los desafíos comunes en el comercio internacional del vino desde la perspectiva de los productores del nuevo mundo y las posibles respuestas corporativas para tratar estos asuntos.

• Obtener una mejor comprensión de las perspectivas con respecto a nuevos reglamentos y disciplinas multilaterales o plurilaterales destinadas a guiar el uso de medidas sanitarias y fitosanitarias, incluyendo prácticas y estándares enológicos.

• Definir principios con relación a los interrogantes que se plantean respecto  a la propiedad intelectual en el tema vinos, incluyendo asuntos vinculados al tratamiento de las expresiones tradicionales.

• La protección de los consumidores.

El Grupo reúne representantes de la Industria y de los gobiernos a fin de trabajar de manera conjunta para facilitar el comercio internacional de vinos. Para más información visitar el sitio oficial del GMCV: http://www.wwtg-gmcv.org/
