It was in 2002 that CEVI emerged with the aim to gather and represent the independent winegrowers in Europe. Today, the Confederation of European Winegrowers, chaired by Thomas Montagne, celebrates its 15th anniversary, a date that will be marked with an event on the 7th of November.
A tasting and banquet which will accompanied by the Wine in Moderation responsible drinking message will take place in the prestigious Circle Royal Gaulois in the heart of the Parc Royal in Brussels. Several representatives of the European Commission, members of the European Parliament and members of different organisations will be present, which will make it a great opportunity to present the wine sector’s contribution in inspiring a healthy lifestyle and reducing alcohol related harm.
CEVI has been supporting the Wine in Moderation programme since the very beginning and is an Observer of the WiM Association.
