The Trinational Eurodistrict Basel is a residential area and economic basin centred around Switzerland’s third largest city and the border towns and municipalities of France and Germany. Situated at a crossroads of languages, the area is taking up the challenge of preparing the first truly international “Internationale Bauaustellung” (IBA Basel 2020), with the aim of turning the unimaginable into fascinating reality. On 16 May 2012, Mission Val de Loire took part in the IBA Basel 2020 exhibition, an opportunity for work and discussion between local authority officials, technicians and project promoters with a view to initiating a common project alongside the Rhine.
The last Vitour Landscape project seminar, which was held in Chinon from 24 to 27 April 2012, brought together 10 European vineyards included on the World Heritage list. It also provided an opportunity for exchanges with the vineyards of Burgundy and Bordeaux. A meeting was held alongside the seminar, focusing on the possibility of the Loire Valley implementing a practice first developed in Tuscany: the creation of landscape and heritage atlases. The project now has its own blog: myVitour.
A river running through Spain and Portugal, the Douro is the guest of honour of this 2012 Event. On the programme: find out about the vineyards of the Upper Douro Valley and Portuguese culture. A wide array of activities will be organised for and with inhabitants over several months – with the two main events being a symposium held in March and a festive weekend in May.
Since the Middle Ages, every 22 January the vinegrowers from each wine-making village in Burgundy have celebrated Saint-Vincent's Day, the patron saint of vinegrowers. In 2012, the celebrations also revolved around Burgundy's bid to list the "climats" of the Côte d'Or as a UNESCO World Heritage in July 2013 – suggested by the French Ministries of Ecology and Culture, alongside the Chauvet-Pont d'Arc painted cave. Representatives of the VITOUR network of European World Heritage Vineyards also attended.
Since 2008, the Maison de Loire in Anjou has organised these biennials which give the general public the opportunity to sail down the river and to better understand the bonds which tie inhabitants to their river, whether they are at the ends of the Loire or the ends of the earth. For 2012, the Vallée Loire Authion Community of Communes is getting involved in the organisation of the event with the aim of making it a real cultural and festive meeting point for those who live here and for tourists who have come to explore the area.
