UNESCO Wine Chair at the University of Burgundy

UNESCO has established a university chair in wine & culture, the Decanter Newsletter reports. It will be held by Jocelyne Pérard, a French climatologist and located at the University of Burgundy at Dijon.

It is not entirely clear to me why UNESCO funds university chairs concerned with wine. On the UNESCO website I could not find anything about the chair. But perhaps we'll soon have a UNESCO Chair fo Canabis & Culture at the University of Rabat, and a Chair on Whiskey and Song at St. Andrews University in Scotland.
