Food Standards Scotland aims to ensure that EU wine regulations are enforced in Scotland.

Our enforcement responsibilities apply to all premises and traders within the production and marketing chain, including wholesalers, warehouses and vineyards. Retail premises come under the control of Trading Standards Departments, as do licensing law requirements.
