Wine in Moderation and wine tourism
The F.I.C.B. International Charter promotes expert and reasonable consumption of wine. It is with this in mind that a partnership was concluded in 2016 between our federation and « Wine in Moderation-Art de vivre » to encourage the wine brotherhoods to relay the message of this international network. This also resulted in our federation being invited to take part in the 2017 Symposium and General Assembly of this organization in Santorini (Greece) from 1 to 4 November 2017.

The Symposium was under the patronage of the International Organization for Vine and Wine (O.I.V.), whose Chairperson, Monika Christmann, presented a broad perspective of the international development of wine tourism and its relation to spreading the wine culture. Alan Bryden, president of F.I.C.B., presented the contribution of the wine brotherhoods to promoting wine culture and responsible wine tourism. Several presentations related to wine cities, wine routes and strategies as well as technologies in support of wine tourism.
At the General Assembly which followed, George Sandeman, President of « Wine in Moderation- Art de vivre », welcomed the partnership concluded with F.I.C.B. and encouraged the wine brotherhoods to include the message on responsible consumption in their communication.
