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:
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
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.
