The approval and authorisation of the various treatments applied to wines is a dynamic process undergoing continuous change, but which must strictly observe the legislative framework. In this paper, a brief comparative analysis based on the studied wine legislation was carried out between the oenological practices authorised in the US, EU, but also in the “New World” countries, with special emphasis on the differences. The paper aims to identify the main oenological practices that have a high probability to be imposed in the near future in European wine legislation and implicitly in Romanian wine law, in the context of competition with “New World” wines and pressures from producers and consumers.
