OIV in Ningxia: President Quini, Director-General Castellucci to visit Yinchuan in August

The Ningxia region of China will develop its ties to the International Organization of Vine and Wine (OIV) when top officials from that intergovernmental group visit later this month for the Helan Mountains East Piedmont Wine Conference.

Both OIV President Claudia Quini and OIV Director-General Federico Castellucci will visit Yinchuan, capital of Ningxia, which this year became the first province or region in China to join the OIV as an observer. Yantai is an observer on a municipal level.

According to the OIV, as of June, the organization consisted of “45 Member States which represent nearly 80% of the global wine production“.

Quini hails from Argentina and was elected for a three-year term as OIV president in June, taking over from outgoing Yves Benard of France. Castellucci has been director general of the OIV since 2004.
