FRANCE: Bordeaux Wine Council elects new MD
Feredj was appointed head of the CIVB in 1989
The Bordeaux Wine Council (CIVB) has appointed a new managing director.
Fabien Bova took over from Roland Feredj on Monday (1 July) after a unanimous vote from CIVB board members. Feredj steps down after 24 years in the role.
Bova has held a number of positions in the Bordeaux wine industry, most recently as MD of FranceAgriMer.
Feredj became head of the CIVB in 1989 and since then has spoken out on a number of issues facing Bordeaux wine, including French Government proposals to split the existing AOC category in two and compensation levels for grubbing up.
