Table wine is a wine term with two different meanings: a style of wine and a quality level within wine classification. In the United States, table wine primarily designates a wine style - ordinary wine which is neither fortified nor sparkling. In the European Union wine regulations, table wine is the lower of two overall quality categories, the higher of which is Quality Wines Produced in Specified Regions. All levels of national wine classification systems within the EU correspond to either TW or the QWPSR, although the terms that actually appear on wine labels are defined by national wine laws with the EU regulations as a framework. Most EU countries have a national classification called table wine in the country's official language. Examples include vin de table in France, vino da tavola in Italy, vino de mesa in Spain, vinho de mesa in Portugal, Tafelwein in Germany, επιτραπέζιος οίνος in Greece. These classifications generally represent the lowest level of classification in their country.
