1 EUROPEAN PAPER ON WINE TOURISM

2 GENERAL PRINCIPLES I. THE FUNDAMENTALS OF OENOTOURISM 1. By oenotourism we mean to designate the development of all tourist and spare time activities, dedicated to the discovery and to the cultural and wine knowledge pleasure of the vine, the wine and its soil. 2. The wine-growing and wine-producing territories should get involved and give an absolute priority to the principles of sustainable development The wine-growing and wine-producing territories should play a decisive role in the conservation, the management and the development of the territory s property. They must give their concrete experiences a model role, both with regard to their objectives and in the application methodology and in the responsible management and of the relationships between the territory and its exploitation Territorial as well as wine-growing and wine-producing resources should be defended, preserved and carefully managed, as public wealth, in order to be able to be always available for the individual and economic use of all those living in the territory The use of territorial resources, and particularly of wine-growing and wineproducing resources, should not endanger the survival of the animal and vegetal species of the ecosystem The wine-growing and wine-producing territories should be efficiently defended and protected from the risks of an anarchic development of the urbanization The wine-growing and wine-producing areas can represent a reference area for the development of a territory. The management models, defined on a rigorously scientific basis, should ensure the conservation of ecosystems in their integrity and their biological complexity. 3. In order to reach their objectives, the wine-growing and wine-producing areas should promote an efficient cooperation between themselves and they should not limit their actions only to their territories. 4. The wine-growing and wine-producing areas should play a decisive role in the spreading of a genuine Wine Culture, which consequently implies the need of an integral, correct and serious management, of a reasonable exploitation of the winegrowing areas in ecological and social terms.

3 II. THE OBJECTIVES OF THE EUROPEAN CHARTER ON OENOTOURISM The signatories undertake to participate in the development of oenotourism based on the following objectives: 1. PROMOTING OENOTOURISM ACCORDING TO THE PRINCIPLES OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT The European Charter on Oenotourism expresses the will of the involved actors, of the tourist professionals and of the wine-growers to promote an oenotourism which complies with the principles of sustainable development. The European Charter on Oenotourism commits the signatories to define a local strategy in favour of the sustainable oenotourist development, defined as a form of development, planning or oenotourist activity which respects and preserves natural, cultural and social resources of the territory in the long run, and which can also fairly and positively contribute to economic development and to the full development of the people living, working and residing in these territories. The development of oenotourism planned this way needs a global concerted reflection as well as the reinforcement of all the positive interactions between the oenotourist activity (wine-growing and wine-producing as well as tourist area) and the other economic areas of a territory. 2. HELPING THE TERRITORIES AND THE ASSOCIATES DEFINE A TOURIST DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM OF THEIR OWN The subscription to the Charter should lead to the definition of a long-term common strategy for tourist development and to an activity program in favour of the territory, thanks to the contribution of the promotion companies and/or organisations.

4 3. SELECTING A COMMON STRATEGIC VIEW The subscription to the Charter should lead to the definition of a long-term common strategy for tourist development, with an activity program in favour of the territory thanks to the contribution of the promotion companies and/or organisations. In order to do that, winegrowing and wine-producing areas should promote the exchange of information in terms of data, knowledge, management models, technologies and analysis models. The oenotourism system is made of the following sub-systems: Territory Tourism Wine-growing and Wine-producing Culture Becoming a member of the European Charter on Oenotourism involves making a diagnosis, consulting the signatories of the Charter as well as their partners, defining common strategic objectives, offering the necessary means, carrying out an action program and assessing the results. To that end, we suggest regrouping the three sub-systems quoted above, in two large operational areas, for which we suggest accepting the following commitments: I. For the territory or all the organisations, whether they have a local, regional or national character, and which have competencies in the planning and the management of a territory: the commitment will have to result in the carrying out of an analysis of the territory s requirements (constraints and opportunities), elaborated and accepted by the associates. This matching aims at defining an oenotourist orientation that should be more adequate for the territory as a whole. II. For the wine-growing and wine-producing company and/or all the companies offering tourist services: the commitment will have to result in the analysis of their activity. They will have to adapt their offer to the clients expectations, to implement the measures for the development of the local heritage and to take into account the environment and the sustainable development in the management of the company.

5 4. THE WILL TO DEVELOP COOPERATION Becoming a member of the Charter means adopting a working method based on the principle of cooperation, which is expressed in the definition and implementation phases of the sustainable oenotourist development program. This will have to result in an intense and loyal activity and cooperation between the actors who manage the territory. This European Charter on Oenotourism will become an instrument for activating this cooperation. It will have to allow organising the sharing of responsibilities and defining individual and collective commitments of all actors involved, whether they are public or private. Actors of the territory: the strategy suggested for an oenotourist area, within the framework of the Charter, will necessarily have to be defined and carried out together with the representatives of the wine-growing and wine-producing as well as tourist areas, with those of the other economic areas and with the inhabitants (residents) of the concerned region, as well as the authorities. This strategy will have to be carried out by means of the agreements signed with the local signatories of the Charter and their partners, within the framework of the sustainable oenotourist development. Wine-growing and wine-producing as well as tourist companies in the territory: they will have to get involved in the reflection and application of the principles of sustainable development, with regard to the oenotourist territory.

6 ACTORS OF THE TERRITORY I. PREAMBLE By becoming members of the European Charter on Oenotourism, the managers of the oenotourist territory choose to promote a tourist development compatible with the principles of sustainable development.
