In 2015, Italy will host the wine world championship, the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles Next year, the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles arrives in Italy, as it was announced by the director of the award, Thomas Costenoble. The prestigious competition restarts its stages in important wine regions of the world and will return to Italy. The event annually assigns quality ratings on thousands of wines on the market. Jesolo will host the 2015 edition and the mayor of the Venetian town Valerio Zoggia promises an edition particularly rich in events and discoveries, in view of the fact that: «may the culture of wine be to Jesolo, and to the Veneto region in general, the very expression of our tradition and a key element of our identity, because wine is able to tell the Venetian history culture and at the same time to characterize the territory and mark the landscapes». Zoggia participated in the edition of Brussels, congratulated for the organization and and was impressed by the number of samples tasted and by their origins highlighting how taste is an opportunity for knowledge and a good occasion to overcome barriers that separate cultures. Not surprisingly, Jesolo supported its candidacy for 2015: the dates of the Concours, in effect, will coincide with the start of Expo 2015 and will help to make Italy the very heart of the world. Created in 1994, the competition has grown over the years and since 2006 is itinerant, only Palermo, in Italy, had hosted it to date. To understand the dimensions of the competition, here are the 2014 numbers: 8,060 wines from 58 countries evaluated during three days of intense tasting by 310 experts from 51 countries. France is the first country participating with 2,428 wines presented, followed by Spain (1,615), Italy (1,153), Portugal and Chile.
