On the occasion of the general assembly of the International Vineyard and Wine Organization (OIV, by its acronym in French), on July 12, France proposed to the 48 member states the installation in Dijon of the new headquarters of the organization, d 'here its centenary in 2024. The final decision will be made by the Member States of the OIV at a next general assembly, scheduled for October.
Established in Paris since its foundation in 1924, the International Vineyard and Wine Organization (OIV, by its acronym in French) is a strategic organization, due to the place that vine and wine occupy in the life of the 48 member countries of the Organization, in addition to the ecological challenges and economic that the sector will have to meet in the coming years.
The year 2024 will be the occasion for the organization to celebrate its centenary and outline perspectives for its future. Together with the Director General and all the members, France, as the host State, proposes that the OIV be able to celebrate this centenary in new venues, which reflect its ambitions, adapt to the needs of the Organization and contribute to its influence.
Very high quality proposals have been studied, such as those from Bordeaux, Dijon and Reims, with each of the cities having proposed prestigious buildings linked to their history. After an in-depth examination of the different solutions by a technical steering committee that associates the Director General of the OIV and the Ministry of Economy, Finance and Recovery, the Ministry of Agriculture and Food and the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, The French government proposes that the city of Dijon can host the headquarters of the OIV.
The project presented by the city provides in particular for the endowment, after the works, of the Hotel Bouchu d´Esterno, the city's architectural flagship dating from the 17th century. The installation of the OIV facilities in Dijon would allow the organization to strengthen its influence and lean on the city's ecosystem, which is a recognized international pole in terms of research, development and promotion of vine and wine. In Dijon, the OIV will thus be able to take advantage of the proximity of the future international city of gastronomy and wine, the Jules Guyot Vine Institute, the UNESCO Chair "Culture and traditions of wine" and the University of Burgundy, which will open the door to new scientific associations.
This proposal to host the OIV in Dijon was presented today by the Secretary of State in charge of Tourism, French residents abroad and the Francophonie, Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne, to the Member States of the OIV, who will decide on the relocation of the local during the October general assembly.
