News from PIWI International March 2022


(Translated with

Dear PIWI Newsletter Subscriber,

The vines are resting for the winter and we have also taken a break.
However, only in the newsletter area. Otherwise, things have been pretty busy at PIWI International.

In January, we organized a workshop on social media for our members. Networking and communication is important in today's world.
A short summary and an overview can be found here

The family of PIWI members is growing. We already have over 750 members. This requires some structural adjustments. Therefore, the PIWI International board met at the end of February for a strategy meeting to set the goals for the coming year and the years to come.

Things are happening in France - the first PIWI grape variety Voltis has been approved for the Champagne AOC. Read our news on the website.

Research projects on sustainable grapevine breeding

Unfortunately, our appeal was not very successful, so we repeat it here again:
The last few weeks have shown how diverse and extensive the research projects on PIWI vines are. We would like to create an overview on our website. For this we need your help. Please send us information on research projects, if possible with a link to the relevant website, to by 15 March 2022.

Information on PIWI Vines

The result of our first online meeting of vine breeders: With a strong presence of vine breeders, the exchange of experience and information was very much supported by all and is an important component for the future of PIWI vines. PIWI International wants to be increasingly available as a coordinator between growers, nurseries and winegrowers in the future. These online meetings will continue. A first result is available on the website.
A meeting of the vine nurseries is planned next. Are you interested? Then please send us your address to



Fairs 2022

The planning for the 2022 fairs is underway - no one can see into the future whether they will take place then, some have already been postponed.

The 14th edition of the AGROVINA fair will take place from 5 to 7 April 2022 at the CERM in Martigny.

Since the hygiene measures for events have been lifted, the fair will take place without restrictions, mask and certificate requirements. This sets the course for a great new Agrovina. A large crowd is expected for this 14th edition.
The fair is the popular meeting place for all those involved in viticulture, oenology, microbrewing and fruit growing.

Care of the vines - mechanization in cultivation - materials and technology for aging, bottling, marketing and commercialization of wine.
