Listing of wines without EAN/UPC codes:

If the manufacturer / Winery of your wine does not issue EANs or UPCs, you can request an EAN/UPC Exemption. If you produce Beer, Wine or Spirits by yourself, you can apply to Amazon Brand Registry to obtain GCIDs unique to your alcoholic beverages.

Vintage – attribute to indicate the vintage nature of a wine:

This attribute is mandatory for all wine products as it describes the year the wine was produced. For wines that don’t have this value, please select ‘NV’ for no vintage information. This field may be used for refinement search feature. Please use a 4-digit numeric value or ‘NV’, for example 2004.
