Bordeaux wines trade body the Conseil Interprofessionel du Vin du Bordeaux (CIVB) has hired consulting group Solving to help it in the drawing up of “a strategic plan of action” for the sector.

Work on the plan, known as ‘Bordeaux Tomorrow', began several months ago and will be presented in July, CIVB president, Alain Vironneau, confirmed yesterday (16 March).
 
“Our priority is to emerge from the economic crisis ready to cope with the profound upheaval that lies ahead,” said Vironneau.

“The plan will encompass every aspect of the sector - piloting development, enhancing the standing and the management of the collective Bordeaux brand, strengthening the competitiveness of businesses, preserving wine-making areas and re-defining the role of the CIVB,” he added.
