In 1963, to mark the 100th anniversary of Louis Pasteur work on wine, was created by Prof. Jean Ribéreau-Gayon and Dr Emile Peynaud, the 1st International Symposium of Enology of Bordeaux.


Since then, the school of Bordeaux wine from the University of Bordeaux organizes regularly (every 4 years since 1995) an international symposium that brings together scientists and experimenters working in the field of enology.

The research unit Enology, Institut des Sciences de la Vigne et du Vin, University of Bordeaux, is organizing the 10th International Symposium of Enology of Bordeaux from Monday June 29th to Wednesday July 1st in the prestigious Palais de la Bourse in Bordeaux.

The scheme for the organization of previous conferences (plenary interventions, brief interventions within the framework of workshops, poster presentations) involving themes: plant and environment; quality of the grapes; microorganisms of grapes and wine; composition and wine chemistry, processes, components of wine physiological effects; sensory analysis and consumer interface will be complemented by talks of renown researchers specialized in the fields of cognitive psychology, neuroscience, experimental economics, analytical chemistry, microbiology and chemistry of wine to a point on the current knowledge in these disciplines and identifying prospects for the future of enology.
