Theme 8: The wine civilization, Chenin 's imagination. Wine tourism as creator of the imaginary world

  • Issues of the theme: This theme explores, through the role of grape varieties in the "personification" of a territory, in the visibility of its identity, as well as in the collection of authentic stories, Chenin's relationship to these cultural elements, to the imaginary, to the words and names of Chenin.  

  • Expected contributions: The expected papers on this theme will focus in particular on the "grape strategy" that can be envisaged for Chenin vineyards (imagination, identity); on the poetic, literary and artistic riches existing around Chenin and on their valorization.
