The High Environmental Value is a certification resulting from a progressive environmental approach that can be obtained by wineries. It is the result of a partnership between the various structures of the wine world (public authorities, unions, chambers of agriculture, distributors, etc.) who are concerned about the impact of agricultural practices on the environment.
The HVE certification is based on various environmental performance indicators covering the entire operation. The HVE distinction can be affixed to the processed products of a farm if the products contain at least 95% of raw materials from an HVE certified farm.
