The Internet is the new frontier for legitimate business as well as for fraud of every conceivable kind. What are some of the threats we should all be aware of, and what is the wine industry doing or ought to be doing to confront these threats?


Founded in 1985, the AIDV is the most important international professional association discussing legal questions affecting global as well as regional or local wine production and trade. 

International non-governmental organization, the AIDV integrates the particularities of the world's wine regions through 5 specialized sections.


AIDV enjoys Observer status with the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). It also follows the activities of many other specialized international wine organizations.


The AIDV's members constitute a network of lawyers, judges, notaries, academics, students, civil servants and regulators, managers of professional associations of wine producers and trade organizations.

The AIDV now has more than 350 members, individual and institutional, from 30 countries on five continents.
