Nearly 500 experts, academics and students from 30 countries participated in the 39th World Congress of Vine and Wine held in Bento Gonçalves, Brazil.
Thanks to the joint work of the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, the state of Rio Grande do Sul, the city of Bento Gonçalves, Embrapa and Ibravin, the Brazilian wine capital became the global capital of this industry from Sunday October 23, through Friday October 28, 2016.
And after 7 years of absence, Mexico finally returned to the International Organization of Vine and Wine (OIV), which will help the country to achieve greater competitiveness in the sector.
The General Assembly of OIV Member States formalised Mexico’s return to the OIV, making it the 46th Member Country integrated by the OIV, and also accepted Switzerland’s invitation to host the 2019 Congress.
There was a strong presence of young researchers from different countries, demonstrating a certain revival and the attractiveness of the vitivinicultural sector.
According to a statement from the Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (Sagarpa), “the integration of Mexico to this important organization is thanks to the commitment of its producers and the quality of their products, which meet the internationally recognized standards”.
Currently Mexico ranks 29 in the world in grape production, with a vineyard area of 29,923 hectares spread over 14 states where wine is produced, with Sonora being the state that holds 77 percent the national harvest.
The return of Mexico to the International Organization of Vine and Wine (OIV), will strengthen partnerships and develop international business, plus it will help establish clear rules on the marketing of wine, which will help our country to enlarge its presence in the industry worldwide, providing more controls to ensure quality wine production and consumption.
