The Conseil Interprofessionnel des Vins d'Alsace

The Conseil Interprofessionnel des Vins d’Alsace (CIVA – regional wine body) was instituted by decree on April 22, 1963.

Its field of activity originally covered the AOC Alsace, recognized by decree on October 3, 1962.

It was later expanded with the appellations "Alsace Grand Cru" and "Crémant d’Alsace", recognized respectively by decree on November 20, 1975 and on August 24, 1976.

The Comité Interprofessionnel du Vin d’Alsace (of Alsace wine) such as it was originally named, later became "Conseil Interprofessionnel of Alsace Wines", therefore including the diversity of wines of Alsace and their appellations.
