International Certification Regenerative Viticulture Alliance

What is RVA certification?

It is the highest standard for regenerative viticulture worldwide. We want to enable vine growers, producers, and consumers to create a better world through regenerative viticulture, an agricultural model that improves the health of vineyard soils and has a positive impact in terms of biodiversity, carbon sequestration, and water cycles in production areas.

What are the goals?

  • To recognize the vine growers who use regenerative viticulture and demonstrate an improvement in the soils where the grapes are produced
  • To certify the wines that come from regenerative vineyards and contribute to slowing down global warming

What does the certification standard include?

  • Recommended regenerative viticulture practices that can be applied in the vineyard on two levels: Transition and Advanced
