In 50 years, we have become a force in wine growth and production in the great south of France. and a major international player recognised for its expertise and know-how.
Born in Languedoc-Roussillon, a territory with more than 2,600 years of wine-making tradition, our name, Vinadeis, with its Latin resonance, pays tribute to this legacy and historical expertise.
With more than 520 employees, our group has a unique set of skills as a producer, winemaker, blender and maturer of the wines of the South of France. VINADEIS is a vertically integrated global player in vine-to-glass, with a number of specialised tools in packaging, logistics and marketing. It is an outstanding expert in various fields: a creator of well-known brands, the undisputed leader in the commercialisation of Domaines et Châteaux in the South of France, a pioneer in packaging and new products through its subsidiary dedicated to innovation, an expert in organic products and creator of a wine experience totally orientated towards customer satisfaction.
Today, Vinadeis has international operations, which make it possible to spread the reputation of the great wines of the South of France, from Aquitaine to the Rhone Valley, across the world. A strong sales and distribution network serving customers who appreciate close links combined with a very good knowledge of the markets.
The Group has been committed to sustainable development for many years, searching for a “sustainable-responsible” equation … This commitment makes sense to us, enabling nature to flourish and our winegrowers to live decently, and give meaning to the wine consumed. Historically committed to responsible viticulture, Vinadeis has built its development on the foundation of its co-operative values and its business project is based on the three pillars of sustainable development:
This approach is in line with our strategy and consistent with the ethical characteristics of co-operation (democracy, human promotion, mutuality and equity). It is also in line with our objectives of economic efficiency, innovation, social equity, preservation of the environment, high-quality production from the regions and improvement in terms of income and quality of life for Group members.
Our sustainable development approach is structured around six central themes:
1 – local development
2 – consumers and customers
3 – economic performance
4 – governance and organisation
5 – management of human resources and working conditions
6 – environment
For more than 20 years, Vinadeis has been committed to the continuous improvement of its quality systems to obtain high level certifications and thus satisfy customer, consumer and citizen requirements and increase the performance of its production tools three-fold (economic, environmental, societal) , and also of its co-operatives and wine-growers.
Certifications such as Agri Confiance®, ISO 14001, IFS and BRC are part of the Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility strategy.
Our Vignerons de La Méditerranée site in Narbonne was the first company in the wine sector to obtain ISO 9001 certification in 1992. Since then, we have put in place practices for sustainable agriculture and traceability in the vineyards, and quality and hygiene systems in the group’s 11 wineries. In the 2000s, the first ISO 14001 environmental steps were taken, which we developed to meet the values of the group. Due to our quality and environmental processes already being in place, along with our internal reference for good practice for the winegrower and wine-seller “Respect for People and Nature”, we were able to obtain NF V01-007 (Agri Confiance ®) certification relatively quickly.
For the future, the issues are to move towards more agro-ecological measures such as mating disruption and organic techniques, the total disappearance of chemical weed control and the continued reduction of inputs. As such, Vinadeis (via its majority shareholder co-operative) has just been recognised by the public authorities as a Group of Economic and Environmental Interest (GIEE) .
Within the VINADEIS Group, we are convinced that the quest for excellence rests on the talents of men and women. Our recruitment policy is therefore a long-term vision; we are committed to developing your potential and recognising the value of your work.
We attach great importance to the integration of each of our employees. To maintain skills levels and guarantee progress, we provide a comprehensive training programme.
