Wines from Crimea have been found in European shops

The sparkling wines produced in the territory of the annexed Crimea are sold in several shops on the territory of the European Union.

According to eyewitnesses, such wines can be freely purchased for 7.99 Euros in a shop near the road connecting Brno and Vienna. The bottle label states that the wine is made in Crimea.

Journalists found that a company with its office in Germany was a distributor for this product. The company’s website states that the grapes for the wine were harvested in the regions of Alushta and Sudak (Crimea).

As a reminder, the EU instituted an import prohibition of goods from Crimea back in 2014. Later the prohibition was extended until mid 2017.

The products certified in Ukraine may be the only exception.
