Organic viticulture

Organic, ecological or also organic-ecological viticulture refers to different forms of production for the production of grapes and wine based on the most nature-friendly measures possible, taking into account knowledge regarding ecology and environmental protection. In 2021, the OIV (Organisation Internationale de la Vigne et du Vin) published figures on the development of organic/ecologically certified viticulture. This increased by around 13% per year between 2005 and 2019.

Vineyards & production volumes

The cultivated vineyard area worldwide is around 450,000 hectares, which corresponds to around 6% of the total area. European countries such as Italy and Austria dominate with 15%, France with 14% and Germany with 8%. Spain, France and Italy together account for 75% of the world's organically farmed vineyards.
