please ignore the first post. i've uploaded the wrong image. this is the right one:)
Without being able to see this any better, I'm going to just guess at something that might be close -- Peignot Light. Without a larger image to see some detail, this will be hard to ID with any certainty.
(If you have a series of 'Wine Labels' for ID, please use the name of the wine so that we know we haven't already answered your question? I almost didn't open this thread because I thought it was a duplicate.)

Peignot doesn't have a descending J.
I thought of Stone Sans but the E arms and J tail lengths don't look quite right.
I agree about the J, but I thought it could have been tweaked to be longer.
OK, how about Aperto?
thank you very much guys. unfortunately that is the only image i can get (it was cropped from a screenshot). the wine label belongs to jose maria de fonseca and it's called "jose de sousa". thanks once again for you efforts and i appologize for the previous wrong post.
FWIW the caps in this better shot of a different label look like Trajan.
I did some stretching and bending and overlaid a squooshed Cora in purple outline on top. I think the S has the wrong inflection but it's close.
Basel Sans is close too:
How about Linotype Norma?
Well scrap my suggestions as neither of those fonts were around in 1999! :(
Another close one is also by Franko Luin -- Dialog. The strokes are a bit too even, and the J is a bit too smooth.
I'm sad nobody got this one, it's a very elegant face.
I tend to agree with Florian about Castle Light being very close, but this JDS font has a more open G (presuming the same font is used for the small lettering), and a somewhat different J. It's also a bit more tapered, or contrast-y (not sure how to describe the swelling thicknesses, especially in the curves of the S, O and D).
It's almost like a 'display' version of Castle.
Very elegant, I agree.
Reminds me of Gerard Unger’s Vesta/Big Vesta, too.
