The Saint-Emilion Wine Council

Saint-Emilion Wine Council: An ongoing evolution

In 2007, the Wine Syndicate of Saint-Emilion became the “Saint-Emilion Wine Council”, bringing together the Saint-Emilion syndicate and the two syndicates representing Lussac Saint-Emilion and Puisseguin Saint-Emilion.

The Saint-Emilion was also the oldest surviving wine syndicate in France, and its work continues today. It has evolved and become stronger thanks to its new members, under the new title “Saint-Emilion Wine Council”.

Today the Saint-Emilion Wine Council aims to:

  • Promote the appelations of Saint-Emilion, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Lussac Saint-Emilion and Puisseguin Saint-Emilion by means of public relations and press relations both in France and overseas.
  • Carry out the tasks delegated by the State, as the Defence and Management Agency for these AOCs: develop the AOC  technical specifications in partnership with the INAO and accompanying inspection plans with the Inspection Body, identify operators, regulate winegrowing estates, take part in defence activities and take action to protect and promote our name, product and territory, whilst reinforcing our statistical understanding of the sector.
  • Provide advice and services to its members in all sectors which have an impact on winegrowing: trademark protection, regulations in the wine-growing sector, oenology, viticulture, training…
