Re: Open letter to Members of the European Parliament – A coherent EU financial
support for the wine sector to recover from the crisis caused by COVID-19 pandemic
Dear Members of the European Parliament,
Let me first thank you for all the unwavering support you have shown lately in defending the
European wine in such difficult times for its winegrowers. Your actions were essential to
establish a bridge between the European Commission’s proposals to address the market
disturbance in our sector caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and our real needs from the field.
Now more than ever, we need your full assistance. We will not get out of this crisis without
concrete means for recovery in the short-term, and that will enable our sector to start recovering
for building its future in the long-term.
Thanks to your commitment, the European Commission published new measures to allow more
flexibility to Members States in using their remaining funds under their National Support
Programmes. Indeed, massive volumes of wines have to be withdrawn from the market, with
either crisis distillation or private storage being relevant tools to facilitate this withdrawal.
Green harvesting will also help regulating the upcoming harvest. All this flexibilities are an
adding value.
Nevertheless, none of these measures will be impactful without financial resources to
implement them, and the European Commission has provided the European viticulture with no
money. National Support Programmes are unable to finance all necessary actions alone, and the
same goes with Member states that cannot bear this burden without EU financial help. I am
therefore asking you to consider an additional funding support to overcome the immediate
problems that European winegrowers have been facing since the beginning of the crisis.
Lately, the European Commission has shown a degree of openness in proposing to mobilise
funds to continue supporting the EU humanitarian missions under the use of contingency
margin “as the last resource instrument”. We do not question either this support, or the EU
policy in such area. However, we deeply regret that this instrument was not proposed to our
sector as well, both as an alternative to help it dealing with the immediate actions to be funded
and as a last resource instrument.

As I already mentioned in a previous letter addressed to President von der Leyen on 13 May
and based on available information from the field, an additional fund of two hundred million
euros is necessary for European winegrowers to implement efficiently the flexibility measures
proposed by the European Commission. This amount would become accessible using the
mobilisation of contingency margin.
Thus, I call on all of you to continue pushing for a more ambitious plan as well as for a European
inflection that reflects our need of a substantial fund. I would be grateful if this message could
be carried out loud and clear during the debates of the upcoming European Parliament Plenary
session. The European viticulture is relying on you and needs your help.
Thank you for your consideration and I remain at your disposal should you need any
clarification regarding this letter.
Yours sincerely,

Thomas Montagne – President
