Accounting for two thirds of bulk wines in Gers, Caves et Vignobles du Gers has set itself a target of collectively certifying the 4,500 hectares under vine belonging to its 450 members. Committed to more sustainable winemaking practices, the Gerland and Vivadour co-operative winery group aims to secure certification for 30% of its white and rosé wines in 2019, 60% in 2020 and 100% in 2021.

The industry has found the reference framework that meets demands by society for more environmentally-friendly wine production and value creation. There are market shares to be gained wherever there are bottling lines”, said Eric Lanxade, CVG's sales manager, who pointed to the emergence of HVE certification as a criterion in calls for tender issued by monopolies in Northern Europe. Lanxade said the pledge made by the leading PGI Côtes de Gascogne firm matched its industrial rationale: “It is an accessible standard for our grape collection and processing business. There is a small impact on our agronomic and economic equilibrium, unlike organic farming”.
