Atout France is the national tourism operator which promotes the tourism development of France. The organization promotes the setting up of projects, carries out classifications based on traveler satisfaction, strengthens international communication and validates quality labels, as is the case with the Vignoble et Découverte Label.



The Vignoble et Découverte Label, a tourist commitment around the vineyard


Created in 2009, the Vignoble et Découverte Label promotes those involved in wine tourism as a whole. Accommodation in the heart of the vineyards, restaurant with food and wine pairings, cellar visit and tasting, thematic museum or event, it is intended for all sites and all organizations with a tourist and wine vocation, with a tourist product offer. It corresponds to a collective brand and must comply with regulations, in order to ensure quality service by the professionals holding the label. Once granted, the Vignoble et Découverte Label is valid for 3 years. The request must then be renewed and will be studied by a technical commission, composed of at least one member of the Superior Council of Wine Tourism (CSO). If you see this label written on a banner or an entrance door, you can go there, you will have a quality service and above all, a great wine discovery on arrival.

The Vignoble et Découverte Label, conditions to be respected to obtain it


This label is not reserved for wine professionals. It is open to any other type of activity that includes wine or wine tourism in its presentation or service. There are therefore certain rules to meet in order to hope to obtain the famous green and white label awarded by Atout France:

  • Propose a complete tourism offer with wine as the theme,
  • Correspond to short stay practices, whatever the activity,
  • Have relevance to the theme of vines and wine,
  • Offer quality services.


This last criterion is important since beyond the wine aspect, Atout France makes a point of selecting passionate and committed professionals, who are keen to welcome you in the best conditions. The Vignoble et Découverte Label is therefore a sign of security and commitment to professional tourism. Discovering wine becomes a real pleasure with Atout France.
