The CIVB Bordeaux Wine School
for training activities in the Gironde

The Bordeaux Wine Council (CIVB) strives to provide quality service to the public and wine professionals in Bordeaux. Keeping this objective in sight, the CIVB Bordeaux Wine School obtained ISO 9001: 2008 certification in June 2012 for its training courses in wines from Bordeaux in France’s Gironde département.

International recognition

This certification serves as international recognition for the Bordeaux Wine School’s quality management system. Issued by LRQA, a certification body that is a world leader in this field, it focuses on two key areas of the Bordeaux Wine School’s activities:

  • • accreditation of French and foreign trainers
  • • training performed from the Bordeaux Wine School course offering

The certification is designed to ensure continuous quality improvement.
