A new category of Vin de Pays, called Val de France (in preference to Vin de France), has received the strong support of the Association Nationale Interprofessionnelle des Vins de Table et des Vins de Pays (ANIVIT), according to French review VSB. It could not, however, be introduced for at least two years, as blends of the same grape variety from different regions (as envisaged under the previously proposed Cpages de France category) would require a change to French law. ANIVIT has also declared itself in favour of the proposed 85% rule', which would permit up to 15% of another grape variety and vintage from those on the label.
