Gustavo Santos, Argentinean Minister of Tourism, announced Argentina’s decision to produce a temporary exhibition dedicated to wine culture in Argentinam which will be presented at La Cité du Vin in autumn 2019 as the Guest Wine Region temporary exhibition.

A delegation made up of Gustavo Santos (Minister of Tourism of the Argentine Republic and President of the Executive Council of the World Tourism Organization) and Zurab Pololikashvili (Secretary-General of the WTO) was received at La Cité du Vin on Saturday 26 May by Nicolas Gailly (Treasurer) and Philippe Massol (Director General) of La Fondation pour la culture et les civilisations du vin, at the invitation of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine regional tourism committee (CRT), represented by Régine Marchand (Regional councillor and President of CRT Nouvelle-Aquitaine) and Michel Durrieu (Director of CRT Nouvelle-Aquitaine). Zurab Pololikashvili, who had been present at the inauguration of La Cité du Vin in 2016 alongside the Prime Minister of Georgia, took the opportunity to announce the wish to strengthen links between the World Tourism Organization and La Cité du Vin, through the creation of a future annual meeting.

Each autumn, La Fondation pour la culture et les civilisations du vin gives a partner wine region or country the chance to present a “Guest Wine Region”. The aim is to let the public discover a wine-producing region through its culture and civilisation, in an original and aesthetic exhibition, accompanied by numerous cultural events.
