Taking over the role from Marc Darroze, Patrick Farbos was elected on 1 July and will hold the presidency for the following three years.

A cooperative member and president of Caves Les Hauts de Montrouge in Nogaro, Farbos was born in the Armagnac region and went on to graduate with a BTS Diploma in animal production as well as attending The National School of Horticulture in Versailles.

In his inaugural speech to the BNIA, Farbos said: “We must all share the same collective goal: the opportunities to work together are numerous, such as the project for the Shared House for the Vignoble Armagnac Gascogne.

“We will continue to structure the organisation internally and manage projects in order to continue be successful in the years to come. I’m very encouraged to see young producers and traders joining the BNIA, and I’m convinced that we are going to continue to enhance the value of our savoir-faire.”

Farbos is supported by Jérôme Delord who was named vice-president of the BNIA for the next three years.
