Current labeling laws do not require a list of ingredients in your wine, but that may change if consumers demand more information about what is in the bottle. In an interesting feature in New York, the debate over listing all of the ingredients used in the wine-making process on the label has has both proponents and opponents. While some winemakers feel that it is a step towards transparency, and that they have nothing to hide with the ingredients used to create their wines, a retailer and restaurant owner interviewed are more skeptical. Even though many ingredients are natural, they are concerned that it may "scare people off" when they have to explain to a customer why, for example, isinglass (a fish-bladder extract) has been used to make the wine they are about to drink.
