The F.I.C.B. Guide now available in 4 languages

The "Practical guide for the creation and development of a wine brotherhood" was approved by the F.I.C.B. General Assembly in January 2017. The guide is meant as much to assist in the creation of a wine brotherhood in regions, with a wine production or not, which do not yet have a brotherhood as to be a source of inspiration for the development of existing brotherhoods.
