Argentina, in the spotlight of the Vineyard exhibition

This Saturday, May 26, the BORDEAUX Business team was at the rendezvous during the presentation of the City of Wine to Mr. Gustavo Santos, Minister of Tourism of the Republic of Argentina and Chairman of the Executive Council of the World Tourism Organization. Gustavo Santos was in the spotlight at the announcement of the next Guest Vineyard exhibition, scheduled for autumn 2019. Indeed, the City of Wine will highlight during this ephemeral exhibition all the wine wealth of Argentina.

Wine - white wine

The largest winery in Latin America, Argentina is naturally a guest of choice for the City of Wine. A major wine producer, however, the country is not well known in the world wine market. The aim of the event will be to introduce the public to the entire culture and wine wealth of Argentina, through an original exhibition, accompanied by several cultural events. Argentinian wines include Clos de los Siete, which has the distinction of having its design partly entrusted to three Bordeaux, or the Cheval des Andes, a “four-handed” wine from Terrazas de los Andes and Cheval Blanc, in Saint-Emilion.

Each fall, the event organized by the Foundation for Culture and Civilization, welcomes a country with its own wine history to the City of Wine. The first Guest Vineyard was Georgia in 2017. The country is known as the oldest wine country in the world. The country’s architectural treasures were showcased and attracted more than 50,000 people.

Wine - Ancient

Before discovering the ephemeral exhibition dedicated to Argentina, we invite you to take part in the next exhibition of the City of Wine, dedicated to the region of Porto, which will be held from October 5, 2018 to January 6, 2019

The Porto region has been given the first controlled appellation of origin in the world. Moreover, the landscape of the Haut Douro is so famous that it is a UNESCO world heritage site. This beautiful country that has transported more than one visitor will also be presented at the exhibition to transport visitors into the landscape that has helped shape the best port in the world.

Argentina will therefore have to be up to the task when presenting the exhibition to transport tourists and curious visitors to another place rich in culture.

The BORDEAUX Business team also had the chance to meet Zurab Pololikashvili, Secretary of the World Tourism Organization, Régine Marchand, Regional Councillor and Chair of the Regional Tourism Committee of New Aquitaine, Michel Durrieu, director of CRT Nouvelle Aquitaine, Nicolas Gailly, director and secretary of the Donation Fund for the support of the City of Wine, as well as Philippe Massol, Executive Director of the Foundation for Wine Culture and Civilizations.

Wine - Red wine

The Foundation for wine culture and civilizations has become a recognized organization of public utility. Thanks to donations from individuals and companies, the foundation has managed to offer events in the City of Wine around the culture of wine and civilizations that have shaped and developed the art of wine. Organized in the City of Wine, the events are gaining notoriety and seriousness due to the influx of visitors that continues to grow each year. The City of Wine allows its visitors to discover a different vision of wine culture, as well as its own issues and projects.
