The government will scrap the special consumption tax on wine by end of the year, Minister for Rural Development, Vaggelis Apostolou, announced on Saturday. The measure not only did not meet revenue targets, it boosted illegal trade in wine and grapes.

Inaugurating the Wine Days of Nemea 2017 in one of wine producing regions of Greece, Apostolou said that the ministry is working on the legislation to scrap the special consumption tax on wine and it is expected to be ready before the end of the year.

“It is a commitment by prime minister Alexis Tsipras that the tax will not exist in the new year,” Apostolou stressed.
