It was eighty years ago that France and Spain first put in place a system of regulations for the control of the planting of vines. In terms of the European Union, with the exception of a brief respite from 1970 to 1976, the CMO (Common Market Organisation) has “temporarily” adopted these regulations. The permanent disappearance of these regulations, validated in the texts of the latest reform in 2008 for implementation by the 1.01.2016 or at the latest by 2018, was abundantly motivated, but as the deadline approaches, the wisdom of this deregulation is increasingly being called into question on a European scale by a large number of professionals and regional elected representatives, who fear that it may lead to disastrous consequences. By implementing such a decision, may we not be opening Pandora’s Box in terms of European winemaking?
The members of AREV wanted to enrich their strategic reflexion by looking more deeply into the subject. To this end, they launched an international invitation to tender, before finally selecting the MOISA research unit in Montpellier to produce the study discussed in the present report (téléchargeable ci-dessous).
