by swisscham in General Interest

The town of Aigle in Switzerland will become the worldÕs wine capital in 2019. The travelling Concours Mondial de Bruxelles will host its next event there. The choice was announced on the last day of the 2018 competition, when Dai Binbin, Chief of the Haidian district of Beijing, China, solemnly handed over the Concours Mondial wine glass to FrŽdŽric Borloz, the Mayor of Aigle, Switzerland. ÒAfter Beijing, the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles is returning to its European origins, choosing Switzerland, where vines have been grown since the Roman Empire. The country ranks 5th worldwide for per capita wine consumptionÓ, commented Baudouin Havaux, Chairman of the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles. ÒSwiss wines are on the Concours MondialÕs top ten medal listÓ, he added. ÒOrganising a competition of such magnitude opens up a multitude of doors and provides invaluable visibility, all over the world. Aigle will be proud to host the Brussels World Competition and share the passion of making wine with professionals from around the globeÒ, commented the Mayor of Aigle FrŽdŽric Borloz. 2019 will be an exceptional year for the Swiss wine industry, as the country will also host the General Meeting of the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) and the WinegrowersÕ Festival(Fte des Vignerons) in Vevey which has taken place once every 25 years since 1797.
