XII European Congress of Oenogastronomiques Brotherhoods

7th 8th 9th -  november 2014

Liège (Belgium)

Program

                

The city is well known for its very crowded folk festivals. Although settlements already existed in Roman times, the first references to Liège are from 558, when it was known as Vicus Leudicus. Around 705, Saint Lambert of Maastricht is credited with completing the Christianization of the region, indicating that up to the early 8th-century the religious practices of antiquity had survived in some form. After the creation of the Belgian state Liège (with its metallurgic industry and coal-mines) became all through the 19th century the economic backbone of Belgium. At the moment, the economic situation of Liège has suffered from the closing of the coal-mines and the international economic competition. However, it is still now the third largest city in Belgium (400.000 inhabitants) and an economic attraction pole in the area of Maastricht - Aachen - Liège.

VIII European Congress of Oenogastronomic Brotherhoods and Associations in Bordeaux (France)

  5th 6th 7th November 2010
THE EXCELLENCE OF THE EUROPEAN AGRO-FOOD QUALITY PRODUCTS
Wines and gastronomy, a lively history

 

Wine has defined Bordeaux’s history. As far back as the 3rd century BC, when the Romans introduced wine to the region, the Bordeaux’s wines have enjoyed a favorable reputation. However, in the mid-12th century, its path to worldwide wine fame was set forever when King Henry II of England married Eleanor of Aquitaine and thus gained control of the Bordeaux region. Eleanor's marriage to King Henry also ushered in a struggle between France and England for control of the Aquitaine and the vast English territories in France that would last for three centuries. However, for Bordeaux, the marriage brought only good, as the King tried to gain favor with Bordeaux citizens by allowing them, among other concessions, tax-free trade with England. As a result, Bordeaux wine became the cheapest imported wine in England and, unsurprisingly, very popular with the English.

Cambados in the spanish wine Region of Rias Baixas, the world famous grape of Alvariño
 

Many people has the image of Spain as dry, hot, splash of bullfighting and flamenco. But the landscapes of the Rias Baixas wine region in Spain's northwestern Galicia has another different contrast. Galicia is celtic and its legacy can we see today in the traditional regional instrument, for example, the bagpipe, called "la gaita". Galicia is spiritual and dreamy, with rolling emerald green hills and medieval castles called "Pazos". These Pazos are beautiful, historic manor houses, many converted into small, charming hotels. Galicia has a large coastline with romantic coves and sandy white beaches spotted with quaint fishing villages as Cambados. The galicians have their own language distinct from Spanish, called "gallego" which is a mix of portuguese and spanish.

 

"Albariño is one of Spain’s great gifts to the wine world. These crisp, floral wines rarely age well, but they’re reasonably priced and go nicely with food" (by Robert Parker)

 

2008


 

The VI European Congress of Oenogastronomic Brotherhoods and Associations ended with a successful result with more than 450 participants in the little village of Levico-Terme with eight european countries that brought the most big exhibition of differents products and wines for its promotion and taste.

Now is the time for the next Congress in 2009 that will take place in the village of Cambados near to Santiago de Compostela in the beauty region of Galicia in Spain.
