Professional Organisations: "210 en Beaujolais"
Gathered together at their headquarters at n° 210 du boulevard Victor Vermorel, in Villefranche, baptised "210 en Beaujolais", the wine organisations work together for the improvement of the product of the vineyard. Here you will find the union organisations for vinegrowers, brokers and vine-owners, the wine co-operative federation, all the contributors in the Beaujolais profession working together for the renown of our 12 appellations, upholding their quality and their image.
At the 210 you will find the "Inter Beaujolais", the Beaujolais wine inter-professional organisation that looks after communication, the Comité permanent du Beaujolais, that used to be called the Union Viticole du Beaujolais, that brings together the organisations for the defence and management of Beaujolais, Beaujolais-Villages and the Beaujolais Crus.
Also at the "210" is the Comité de Développement du Beaujolais, under the umbrella of the Chamber of Agriculture that works for the technical side of vines and vinegrowing. By their side is the winemaking research centre called SICAREX Beaujolais. This was founded in 1970 by the local organisations and the Technical vine institute, working on applied R&D, its experimental estate in Liergues works for the future of the winemaking area and shapes it for the 3rd millennium!
