SIVCBD is the acronymn for the Syndicat International des Vignerons en Culture Bio-Dynamique. This was founded in 1995 by a group of fifteen French wine-growers who wanted to create a Biodynamic association specific to wine-growing, and with a set of standards–notably for the winemaking side–which offered more flexibility than those set by Demeter in France via Association Demeter France.
