The trade body, which is charged with promoting wines from the French region of Alsace, said yesterday (13 July) that Rémy Gresser will succeed Jean-Nicolas Schaeffer, who headed CIVA for the last three years as a representative of the negociant members.

Gresser, who was president of CIVA between 2004 and 2005, runs am 11-hectare family estate in Andlau.

He hopes to review the region's wine labelling to specify the style of the wine, its level of sweetness, and food and wine matching suggestions.

“The Alsace brand should appear on every bottle via a logo or a quality mark offering consumers a guarantee of authenticity,” he said.

For the first five months of this year, the Alsace region has seen sales rise by 3.8% year-on-year in volume terms, according to export figures from French customs.
