Millésime Bio was created and organised by Sudvinbio, Occitanie trade association of organic winegrowers. It is the largest international organic wine competition. It gathers producers from 20 countries each year, including 40% of France’s organic wine producers.
The exhibitors should have exactly the same equipment to present their wines: a counter, two chairs, a spittoon, tasting glasses, ice and a display. The exhibit is a question of judging and comparing wines, and not just showcasing the techniques!
The wines presented are all certified organic and exhibitor must provide copies of documents of conformity with the organic production method issued by an accredited certification body for all the wines presented. Flavoured drinks made from organic wine, beer, cider and spirits are also acceptable for tasting which must comply with European regulations for organic products.
Sudvinbio mandates Ecocert to check the compliance of the wines and other beverages presented with the organic regulations.
