On this occasion, Jean-Marie Aurand – after having recalled the main missions of the OIV – gave a panorama of the state of the global vitivinicultural sector, highlighting the major trends and issues for the future.

Within this context, the discussions focused on a certain number of strategic and topical issues:

  • the importance of standards, including those which are internationally recognised, in maintaining the essential characteristics of wine and ensuring the fluidity of trade,
  • the role of the OIV as an intergovernmental reference organisation on the subject,
  • the principles for setting additive limits,
  • perspectives with regard to the labelling of ingredients.

Jean-Marie Aurand praised the quality of the collaboration developed over the years between the OIV and Oenoppia, which benefits from OIV observer status. The Oenoppia teams provide recognised expertise within the different expert groups of the Organisation and have been at the origin of several resolutions.

Oenoppia is an association that brings together the main stakeholders in the production of oenological products. Oenoppia members account for almost 90% of oenological products used in the world.
