Congrès Mondial de la Vigne et du Vin - World Congress of Vine and Wine
An intergovernmental organisation, established in 1924 by six producer states in response to the global viticultural crisis, International Organisation of Wine and Vine (OIV) has been continuously developing and adapting to become the scientific and technical reference organisation for the entire vitivinicultural sector. Its 46 Member States account for more than 85% of global wine production and nearly 80% of world consumption.
There are also 10 non-governmental international organisations that participate in the work of the Organisation as observers.
The OIV contributes to the harmonisation and definition of new international standards in order to improve conditions for producing and marketing vitivinicultural products.
The World Congress of Vine and Wine is usually held every year at the invitation of one of the Member States of the OIV. This Congress is a place for scientists of different backgrounds to meet and exchange views and knowledge. The results of work in the fields of viticulture, oenology, economics and regulatory development of the sector are presented, as well as food security and health impacts.
Scientists around the world are invited to present their work and share their experiences.
