The main battle was fought and won in the European Parliament. There is now no obstacle to the entry into force of the Commission’s delegated act. Congratulations to all who participated and gave their contribution in this, for Istrian winemakers excellent work and great mutual success. I expect the Teran Act to take effect this week”, Said Jakovcic.
