National Stakeholder Forum and Farm day in Hungary
On July 2, 2007 the first National Stakeholder Forum and Farm day of the ORWINE project took place in Balaton region in Hungary. The event was jointly organized by the IFOAM EU Group and Green Agriculture Foundation, Hungary. Hungarian, Austrian, Czech and Slowakian stakeholders thereby had the possibility to learn about ORWINE and to give their input to the European wide research project.

Participants List - NSF HU 2007
The project aims at developing the legislative framework for wine from organic viticulture.
Data about currently applied practices, consumer and market needs in significant areas will be gathered in significant wine producing areas of EU, new member states and accession countries.
Test series with suitable and innovative technologies to improve the quality of wines from organic viticulture, allowing using a low level of sulfites will be conducted and validated on selected pilot farms.
A participatory approach with stakeholder involvement on national and EU levels will be followed, ensuring a high acceptance of the proposed legislative framework.
A code of best practices and an integrated environment assessment tool shall give guidance for wine-producers to produce high quality wine while limiting their impact on the environment.
The project partnership consists of 11 partners from 4 countries (I, F, D, and CH), a SME and a European Organization, covering different disciplines, stakeholder views and experiences. Through IFOAM EU Group, additional countries will be involved (E, PT, GR, HU, BG).
