ECOVIN Logo The Federal Association of Organic Vineyards in Germany, based in Oppenheim (Rhineland-Palatinate), was founded in 1985 by twenty organic winegrowers from the winegrowing regions of Rheinhessen, Pfalz, Mosel and Baden. At that time, it was called "Bundesverband ökologischer Weinbau e. V". ECOVIN is the only German winegrowing association with exclusively organic (ecological) winegrowing

There are regional associations in the individual wine-growing regions, whose 250 member companies cultivate around 1,900 hectares of vineyards. This makes ECOVIN the largest association specializing in viticulture not only in Germany, but also worldwide. All products such as grapes, grape juice, wine and sparkling wine are one hundred percent organically grown. Wines produced according to these rules comply with the EU organic regulation and can be declared and marketed as organic wines (Ökoweine).
