6th “Monzeler Weinrechtstag” concerning the topic „The law of the wine business” at the winery of Karl Veit in Onsann-Monzel on Friday, August 25th 2017.



On Friday, August 25th 2017, there is taking place the 6th „Monzeler Weinrechtstag“ concerning the topic „The law of the wine business”.

The overall theme of the 6th „Monzeler Weinrechtstag“ refers to the notion of Agribusiness and transfers it to the wine sector. Wine business includes the whole value chain of the German wine market and therefore also covers winegrowing. Thus it also contains all upstream and downstream economic activities. Upstream activities comprise particularly equipment (fertilizers, plant protection products, agricultural engineering) whereas the downstream activities mainly comprise trading.

These areas contain specific challenges concerning wine law. This is going to be debated in lectures and discussions.
