Label… Label… On such a small space, so important to the wine brand, legislators and consumers agree on stuffing more and more information. Tina Caputa writes in : “A newly released survey indicates that American consumers support the inclusion of detailed alcohol content information on wine, beer and spirits labels. The survey was commissioned by Shape Up America!, an organization founded by former U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop to raise awareness of the health effects of obesity.”

“A strong majority (92%) of those surveyed”, continues Tina Caputo, “ranked the amount of alcohol in each drink as the top priority for required labeling information, followed by the amount of calories (84%), carbohydrates (75%), fat (71%) and protein (66%).”
