The interprofession

Qui sommes nous ?

Interprofession of Bergerac and Duras Wines


The IVBD was founded by wine merchant and vine grower families on November 3rd 2014 after the merger between the CIVRB (Interprofessional Bergerac Region Wine Council 1953-2014) and CID (Interprofessional Duras Wine Council 1985-2014).
Interprofessions are private state-approved bodies uniting partners throughout the industry. The wine industry’s two representative groups are viticulture and trade.

The following principles must be respected in interprofessional life:

  • Representativity: public authorities provide representativity for each professional body in the industry.
  • Parity: the balance between representative colleges determines equal behaviour.
  • Unanimity: decision-making at key moments of interprofessional life is always unanimous.


The IVBD oversees the following missions:

  • Promotionnelle: 75 % de son budget global. Celebrating and promoting local AOC wines in their markets with collective marketing and consumer information campaigns.
  • Économique: Organisation et harmonisation des pratiques et des relations professionnelles en usage. Understanding of supply and demand. Adaptation and standardisation of supply. State-approved implementation of current regulations. Market transparency through collecting data and drawing up and publishing statistics.

  • Technique: qualité des produits. Establishing technical standards and applied R&D projects. Conducting research work and trials on products at different stages of production to meet quality, health and environment requirements.

Cooperation, an asset for transition.

The IVBD is the beating heart of the area and shares the same values as the people who live and work here.

En 2019, l’IVBD s’est engagé pour la transition de la filière en animant un Laboratoire d’Innovation Territoriale dans le cadre du projet régional VitiRev. En 2021, l’IVBD et Coop’action unissent leur force pour animer et créer la Fab’coop, afin de faire émerger des projets coopératifs pour la transition du territoire.


It is funded by compulsory voluntary subscriptions that we set out and apply subject to the agreement of supervisory ministries.
These taxes are collected on wine sales transactions. Our finances are based on the volume of wine on the market and not the volume of the harvest.
