new(s) from inter beaujolais…

Update 17.3.2017(14.7.2016)billn

Inter Beaujolais* is the ‘southern‘ equivalent of the BIVB. Yesterday they announced some changes:

At their Extraordinary General Meeting on July 13, the members of Inter Beaujolais endorsed the appointments of Dominique Piron as President and David Ratignier as Vice-President. Every two years these positions switch between ‘traders’ and ‘growers’ – we now enter the grower’ phase.

Dominique Piron, 66 is a grower from Morgon and David Ratignier, 46, is a grower in Saint-Etienne-la-Varenne. For the full announcement, in French, click here.

*The Interprofessional des Vins du Beaujolais was formed in 1959 and has responsibility for the 12 Beaujolais appellations. This encompasses an area of ​​16,000 hectares in 2 départments (Rhone and Saone et Loire), producing roughly 100 million bottles per year, representing nearly 2000 winemakers, 12 wine cooperatives and over 150 Maisons de négoce.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    Is Piron really 66?! Might be a misprint by BIVB; I’d put him at no more than 55. In fact, conceivably they’ve got the ages of the two the wrong way around
