One year after the last meeting in Europe, the representatives of the EU and China wine sectors met to exchange on the concrete collaboration on various wine-related dossiers. “We must consider wine a global affair, and transcontinental collaborations like the EU-China one are, nowadays, a necessity for the sector” said Mr Jean-Marie BARILLÈRE (President of CEEV). Mr BARILLÈRE expressed his satisfaction with the current state-of-play of the cooperation.

One year after the last meeting in Europe, the representatives of the EU and China wine sectors met to exchange on the concrete collaboration on various wine-related dossiers. “We must consider wine a global affair, and transcontinental collaborations like the EU-China one are, nowadays, a necessity for the sector” said Mr Jean-Marie BARILLÈRE (President of CEEV). Mr BARILLÈRE expressed his satisfaction with the current state-of-play of the cooperation.

One of the highlights of the programme was the organisation of a tasting of Chinese wines in VINEXPO. The tasting, which was conducted by two wine experts: Mr Demei LI (Vice-Secretary General of CADA’s wine department association) and Mr Baudouin HAVAUX (President of the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles), was the occasion to showcase a wide range of Chinese domestic wines from key regions to a packed auditorium of European and international wine professionals and journalists.

From a practical point of view, the Chinese delegation was able to exchange bilaterally with representatives of some major European wine companies and associations including FELIX SOLIS AVANTIS, CAVIRO, PIO CESARE (member of Accademia del Barolo), MASI, DONNAFUGATA, CANTINE SETTESOLI, INTER-RHÔNE, Maison LOUIS LATOUR, ADVINI, CASTEL and the CONSEIL INTERPROFESSIONNEL DES VINS DE BORDEAUX (CIVB). The latter provided a detailed presentation of the Bordeaux wines quality scheme to the Chinese representatives.

This 2-year programme represents a unique opportunity for the implementation of a technical cooperation between Europe and China, and for the construction of a smooth trade relation in the wine sector between the two regions. “This cooperation should be maintained after the 2-year programme and we are already working with CADA on the evolution of the collaboration” said Dr Ignacio SANCHEZ RECARTE (Secretary General of CEEV). Mr Zuming WANG, Deputy Secretary General of CADA also expressed his confidence on a possible extension of the cooperation programme.
