SI 1318 part 1 - Wine, wine based beverages and beverages based on vitivinicultural products: Definitions, designations and processes (25 page(s), in Hebrew)

Revision of the Mandatory Standard SI 1318 part 1, dealing with definitions, designations and processes of wine and wine-based beverages. This standard should be read together with the Israel Mandatory Standard SI 1318 Part 2 and is based on the following international documents:

  • International Code of Oenological Practices (by OIV);

  • European Council Regulation (EC) No. 479/2008;

  • European Commission Regulation (EC) No. 606/2009;

  • European Commission Regulation (EC) No. 607/2009;

  • American CFR 27 Part 4 - Labeling and advertising of wine - Subpart J - American Grape Variety Names - Clause 4.91 - List of approved names;

  • American CFR 27 Part 24 - Wine - Subpart L - Storage, Treatment and Finishing of Wine - Clause 24.246 - Materials authorized for the treatment of wine and juice.

The major differences between the old version and this new revised draft standard are as follow:

  • Adds new designated names for particular aromatized wine products according to their sugar content;

  • Adds a reference to the list of sparkling wines produced in a continuous method;

  • Updates the list of treatments and ingredients allowed during the wine production procedure;
  • Replaces the definitions of wine-based beverages and beverages based on vitivinicultural products to match the European Commission Regulation (EC) 251/2014.

Both the old standard and this new revised standard will apply from the date of entry into force of this revision for a period of at least two years. During this time wines may be tested according to the old or the new revised standard.

All sections of the revised standard will be declared mandatory.
