Wine of protected origin: This is the future of quality Hungarian wines. This quality control ensures quality wine comes from the region initiated by the producer. The production of these seals is governed by special regulations; primarily, the origin always has to be displayed clearly on the bottle. The Council of Hill Communities of the Eger Wine Region (Egri Borvidék Hegyközségi Tanácsa) together with State Printing Co. Ltd., following French and Italian examples, has developed the seal of origin for wines of protected origin.
Using special graphic design, the seal of origin is printed onto security paper and contains holograms, UV ink, as well as a unique serial number. Its counterfeiting is made practically impossible by the special production technology and the stringent security regulations of the printing company.
