Bordeaux Wine engagement in organics and biodynamics

21 March 2019

 In 2017 60 % of Bordeaux vineyards  are certified in the environmental convertion transition.

The challenge is:

to anticipate the future by  research

to reduce treatment by pesticides

to favour agreement with neighboring territories 

to preserve the biodiversity

to control water and energy consumption

to bring environmental management solutions

 

The projects for organic wines:

Vinadapt (biodiversity), 

Newvine (creation of new grape varieties resistant to climate changes)

 

Label Organic Agriculture:

in France - 5835 explotations = 10 % of French vinyards

in Bordreaux - 532 exploitations = 8% from Bordeaux vineyards

Label Biodynamics

in Bordeaux  37 exploitations  = 1% of total vineyards + 12 in conversion = 238 ha.

The label High Environmental Value HVE (Haute Valeur Environmentale):

246 producers in Gironde in 2018

In April 2018 CIVB (Interprofessional Council of Bordeaux Wine) has edited the program "Ambition 2025", to engage 7000 wine producing companies in the sustainable developpment.
