Name for a wine of the second quality level after the first level quality wine. Due to the EU wine market regulations valid from August 2009, the country wine now corresponds to the category "PGI wine" (wine with a protected geographical indication) after the first category "PDO wine" (wine with a protected designation of origin = quality wine). These new names have been banned in Austria to avoid confusing consumers. Use in Germany was prohibited until the end of 2011. The old terms country wine, quality wine and Prädikatswein have been preserved as "traditional information" in both countries and remain valid. See in detail under quality system,
