Traceability in the wine industry has an undeniable role in a quality assurance management system. It ensures that all manipulations of raw materials, ingredients and final products are recorded on specific documents, created especially to allow a rapid retrieval of the product history. The wine supply chain requires traceability from grape production to processing and wine distribution. Maintaining traceability records on specific documents has many benefits for both producers and consumers. A practical traceability system ensures: efficient process logistics, rapid decision making by the producers, but also provides the consumer confidence in the authenticity of wines and proper usage of approved oenological practices and safety procedures during production. In spite of the legal requirements for traceability systems, they are not widely applied in our wine industry and the documents involved are difficult to be maintained and updated. This paper proposes a series of specific documents to be used for a more efficient and practical system of traceability in the wine industry.
