Greece To Scrap Controversial Wine Tax

According to information revealed by the Greek newspaper Kathimerini, the Greek government intends to exclude from next year’s draft budget revenues from an excise tax on wine that was introduced in 2016.
The tax was initally received by the Greek wine market with suspicion as it could cause damage to Greece’s wine production.
The ”special consumption tax” as it was called, adds €0.15 ($0.17) to the cost of a 750ml bottle of wine or €0.20 ($0.23) to a 1-liter bottle.
The Greek Wine Federation along with the National Interprofessional Organization of Vine and other associations challenged legally this tax and won the case as Greece’s Council of State has now said that its implementation is unconstitutional.
