During the last days, we became witness of another attempt by the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (fYRoM) to violate European Law by using the label “Macedonian Wine“, a term which enjoys a European Union-mandated Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) status for wines produced solely in the Greek province of Macedonia.
Since the people from FYROM are proving themselves again to be ignorant of the designations of origin and geographical indications protected in the EU, we will help them clearing out their confusion.
