Ensuring wine traceability has been mandatory since 1rst January 2002 and must allow the tracking of wine location from the harvest arrival to the bottle warehouse.
In practical terms, it revolves around tracking all movements and oenological processes.
Beyond the regulatory obligation defined by the European Commission, the objective across all stages of production, processing, distribution and location is to allow for tracing back to the original source should a problem occur. The managers of Château Bizard did not wait until this regulation came into effect to invest in training their staff and acquiring new software.
Vineyard works and treatments are also taken into account.
Although wine remains relatively preserved from food safety risks, it is crucial that consumer trust in our products remains equally preserved.
