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.
