Centenary activities


2024: a year of celebrations

Join us in celebrating the OIV Centenary through a series of engaging activities, courses, events, and projects specially tailored for the centenary under the motto "Learning from the past, focus on the present, ready for the future".





Our centenary events are meticulously tailored to address the challenges of the future. In recognition of the evolving landscape, we have curated a series of courses designed to equip the vine and wine sector with the knowledge and skills needed to navigate forthcoming challenges, particularly those posed by climate change. By offering these courses, the OIV aims not only to impart essential knowledge but also to empower people to be better prepared, resilient, and adaptive in the face of emerging challenges, ensuring the sustainability and prosperity of the vine and wine sector for generations to come.
