Who we are

UGIVI (UNIONE GIURISTI DELLA VITE E DEL VINO ) is an independent and non-profit association, established in Milan in 1997.

UGIVI’s  members  are:  lawyers, judges, university scholars and experts, who have acquired particular knowledge in the wine sector.

Association’ aim  is to promote and develop studies on wine law in the field of European Union, national and international law.

Said activity, characterized by a pragmatic and interdisciplinary approach, also includes the “spirits” sector.

As part of the association’s scientific activity, annual  seminars (specifically dedicated for wine-making companies) and conferences (addressed to all wine operators) are organized annually,  to discuss the main actual legal issues.

Usually, in order to encourage participation, our meetings are held within the most significant wine trade fairs, such as Vinitaly in Verona (here we are getting a twenty years presence quite).

Our Association has the honor and privilege to see its own regional delegation (the one for Piedmont and Valle d’Aosta) hosted at the Piedmont Regional  Enoteca  “Cavour“, located in the Castle of Grinzane Cavour (CN).

In 2017, two important meetings were organized here: one dedicated to the new organic Italian discipline on wine production and trade and the other on its e-commerce.
