Business France Stockholm coordinates several events regarding sustainability
Sustainability is on everyone’s agenda. Thus, alongside the annual open tasting “Tastin’ France”, Business France Stockholm organizes a panel discussion on sustainability moderated by the expert journalist Per Styregard with the participation of Systembolaget and five French winegrowers. The panel will seek to give a better understanding of the ecosystem and the different labels: HVE3, Ecocert, hållbart val… and how French wine regions apprehend the future in terms of climate change.
A promising 2022 harvest for excellent French and sustainable wine
Driven by the will to produce better and to develop a more sustainable viticulture, the production of sustainable wine has been in constant growth in France during the last years. In 2021 over 90,000 hectares were certified organic, a 13 % increase compared to 2020. The best is yet to come as 70,000 hectares are currently in conversion to be certified organic, a 21% growth compared to last year.
The harvest is underway in all wine regions in France, 2022 looks to be an excellent year, volumes are up by 16% compared to 2021.
