15,700 Champagne Growers cultivate 34,300 hectares.
More than 10,000 Growers sell their grapes to the Champagne Houses and some 4,700 Growers produce and market their own Champagne wines, either directly via a Cooperative.
Created on 21 August 1904, the Syndicat Général des Vignerons de la Champagne (SGV) now embraces practically all of the grape producers in the Champagne AOC area (more than 15,000) regardless of the size of their vineyard holding.
Its scope encompasses the whole of the Champagne AOC production area, extending over more than 300 wine growing communes in five departments, including a "local section" in each commune that comprises at least seven independent Champagne Growers.
The objectives of the SGV are, and have always been, as follows:
The ongoing dialogue between elected officials from all of the villages represented by the SGV makes it possible to reach a much-needed consensus with the Champagne Houses on the issue of protecting the common interests of the community of Champagne Growers as a whole.
