At the request of the scientific community of the OIV, the members of the OIV Award Jury, who met in Paris on 5 July 2018, decided unanimously to create a new Awards category: “Sustainable vitiviniculture”.
This 11th category will take into account a topic that is a major concern for OIV experts.
It responds to a growing number of works addressing sustainable development in the field of vitiviniculture – which is something the OIV Jury thus wishes to strongly encourage.
For the next OIV Awards, which will be open for submissions from 1 September 2018 to 28 February 2019, works covering the 3 pillars of sustainable development (environment, society and economy) will be able to compete in this new category.
*Submission forms available on the OIV website from 1 September 2018 here
On July 5 in Paris the International OIV Jury awarded 14 Prizes and 10 Special Mentions, among 51 works in competition, 19 countries represented. Click here to check the 2018 OIV Awards
