« Vigneron Indépendant » a collective brand recognizable by its real landmark logo for the consumer.
A handful of women and men created in 1976, the union of independent vine growers. At this time, they are called « Caves Particulières ». This name comes from the harvest declaration on which the vine growers indicate if they are cooperators or in particular cellars. It is the south of France which is the cradle of this group of vine growers. The mesh all over the wine territory has been relatively fast.
In 2003, the movement changed its name to become: Vigneron Indépendant de France (Independent Winegrowers of France).
Today, 7,000 members are distributed in the 32 departmental federations and 10 regional federations.
