Bordeaux to Host Exhibition Dedicated to Georgian Wine-Making and Viticulture

Bordeaux, France - The Bordeaux Center for Wine and Civilizations will host a large scale Georgian exhibition dedicated to wine-making and viticulture in 2017.

Georgia will be the first invited country to open the series of exhibitions of wine-making and viticulture in the Bordeaux Center.

In recognition of the importance of the event, the Georgian government has set up a special commission, composed of representatives of various government agencies and headed by the Minister of Agriculture, Otar Danelia. The Commission should ensure the event is conducted successfully and at a high level.

The Commission has already held a meeting to discuss preparation of information materials and literature for the Center and the selection of wines to present at the exhibition.

“Bordeaux is a world center of wine-making. Presenting Georgia at the exhibition, as a cradle of wine, will promote our country in Europe and throughout the world,” Minister Danelia said. “It is important that Georgia be presented at the exhibition not only in terms of wine-making, but also in terms of culture, ethnography and history. That is why organizers include representatives of the ministries of Agriculture, Foreign Affairs, Education and Science, Culture and Monument Protection, and Economy and Sustainable Development.”

The Bordeaux Center for Wine and Civilization will open on May 31st, 2016. Building the large-scale complex was initiated by the Bordeaux City Mayor, Alain Juppe. The Center, which is 14 thousand square meters, will feature modern architecture and technology and will present the latest achievements in the field.
