The MONDIAL DES VINS EXTREMES is organised by CERVIM (Research and Coordinating Centre for the Protection, Promotion and Enhancement of Mountain Viticulture) in collaboration with the Aosta Valley Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources and the VIVAL Association (AOsta Valley), under the sponsorship of the International Organization of Vine and Wine (OIV).

The aim of the most important international wine competition, which is reserved to wines produced in mountain and steeply sloping areas, is to promote the wine production of these regions, which are characterized by structural difficulties but also by rare wines possessing extraordinary features.
