Placed under the patronage of the OIV, this event was put on within the framework of the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC), of which Russia assumed the chairmanship in 2016.

It gathered together around 150 actors in the vitivinicultural sector and wine producers – with distributors, oenologists and sommeliers from 10 or so countries.

During a conference organised on the theme of prospects for cooperation (both technical and economic) in the vitivinicultural sector all around the Black Sea region, the Director General of the OIV, Jean-Marie Aurand, gave a presentation of the major trends in vitiviniculture on a global scale – with a particular focus on the main developments in consumption and its recent evolutions.
