The Wine in Moderation-Art de Vivre programme will be at the heart of the 2015 OIV Congress which will be held in Mainz, Germany.


George Sandeman, President of the WiM Association, has indeed been invited as keynote speaker of the Congress. Sandeman will present the success story of the WINE in MODERATION – Art de Vivre movement, and highlight the path of the programme: from a European perspective to an international movement.


But this is not all; the Joint Technical Meeting which will take place on the first day of the Congress will also feature WIM as comprehensive topic in all four commissions (Viticulture, Oenology, Economy and Law, Safety and Health) with Wine in Moderation as main topic: Wine in Moderation – responsible consumption as a global movement.
