Association of integrated and organic production of grapes and wine, Czech Republic
Tomas Richter (General secretary)
Ekovin's goal is to promote modern technologies that are particularly environmentally friendly. The mastery of integrated production technology is the gateway to a successful transition to a purely organic system, as demonstrated by the ever increasing area of registered biowheat farms. Currently there are approx. 12,000 hectares of vineyards in integrated production, which represents approximately 63% of all vineyards in the Czech Republic, and with the growing interest in organic farming, the share of the area is steadily increasing and currently we have approx. 6% of vineyards in the certified organic regime, the vast majority of the transition from integrated production areas.
