Managed by elected members, the Bourgogne Wine Board (BIVB) brings together the wine region’s two families – viticulture and négoce – in order to define strategic aims. It comprises 300 maisons de négoce, 17 cooperative cellars, and 3,949 wine-producing estates.
The trade board represents and defends the interests of Bourgogne wine producers. To that end, it carries out initiatives involving those in the trade and wine lovers, while at the same time providing technical support and market advice to wine professionals.
Subjected to state financial control, the BIVB has an annual budget of around 10 million euros. Its revenue comes from obligatory subscriptions paid by wine professionals, which vary according to the category of appellation and the quantities produced.
