XIIth International Terroir CongressFrom the 18th to the 22nd of June 2018, the City of Zaragoza will welcome the XIIth International Terroir Congress. Since 1996, this biennial event allows the expert scientific community to meet and discuss the latest results of research on the concept of ‘terroir’.

The XIIth ediition of the Congress is organized by the Government of Aragon Region and supported by academics from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, under the aegis of the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) and with the cooperation of many other partners.

A comprehensive program is proposed about all the concepts related to ‘terroirs’, including several technical visits to vineyards in Aragón región. Nearly 300 experts are expected.

Currently, the notion of ‘terroir’ plays a critical role on the wine industry, and it has a significant impact on the development of vineyards. As a result of an increasing awareness across the world, OIV made the decision to take care of this notion.

France, Italy, Spain, South Africa, Switzerland, Hungary and the United States of America hosted the former conferences. The next edition will be in Zaragoza.

This spring is being more rainy than usual and the vineyards and Zaragoza await us with hope to bring a good memory from here.
