“The Bordeaux Center for Wine and Civilizations will open on May 31st, 2016. Georgia will be the first invited country to open the series of exhibitions of wine-making and viticulture in the Bordeaux Center”, Hvino News reports.

According to the website, in July-August 2017 Georgia, as an honored guest, will present an exhibition named "Vineyard-Georgia". Corresponding agreement has already been signed between Georgia’s Agriculture Minister Otar Danelia and the Head of Foundation for Wine Culture and Civilizations.

As the Chairman of French wine culture and civilization, Sylvie Kass said, the first exhibition to hold in the center of civilization and culture in France will be dedicated to Georgia. "Georgia is known as a cradle of wine. It will be an important and at the same time historical event. The exhibition fair will be accompanied by an extensive professional program, including tastings, conferences, seminars and other cultural events, which will allow French people to learn more about Georgian wine and about your magnificent country - Georgia " - said Sylvie Cass.

"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. An interdisciplinary center evoking history, geography, the life sciences, ethnography, literature, philosophy and the arts, the museum aims to promote a better understanding of both present and future challenges facing the wine industry. It will also showcase wine civilizations throughout the world, revealing the links between wine and the imaginary, and will share the refinement and art de vivre that epitomize wine culture.

France’s city of Bordeaux declared 2017 as the year of Georgia.

According to the city administration the decision was made due to the fact Georgia is not only the winemaking country, but also has ancient winemaking traditions. The French city itself is considered to be the center of wine civilization.

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 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", - Hvino News reports.
