The end of ANIVIT
Wednesday 21 October
Following the launch of the new wine category vin de France, ANIVIT, the trade organisation for vins de pays and vins de table wines, has been renamed ANIVIN.
Regular readers of my blog will know that the new vin de France designation permits table wines to bear the vintage and variety on the label, making it a much more appealing for big brands including J.P.Chenet.
The organization will no longer by responsible for vin de pays wines and will focus entirely on developing the new category vin de France.
As an aside, I am still trying to find out what is going to happen to the high-profile top 100 vin de pays competition when the category becomes Indication Geographique Protegee (IGP). A competition for a category that no longer exists would be slightly eccentric.
