Mclaren Vale


Would it be easier to start listing wine growing regions that aren't trying to become World Heritage Sites?

I didn't realise that Prosecco has sneaked onto the Italian t-list.
This one really does seem odd. In terms of it's classification as a quality wine region it is pretty recent (2009), and the set up of the region is something of a fudge. Even the style of wine that it produces has changed markedly in the last 30 years, to basically market itself as a cheap alternative to champagne.
So I guess that the idea is to use a well know wine to get a rural area onto the list.
What would this add to the Italian list, let alone the World Heritage list?

I was there last year, and enjoyed it very much.

Berwick-upon-tweed wantes to join the UK tentative list. Having been there, the town is certainly enjoyable and worth visiting, but as a world heritage site? I would say no.

In China, efforts are made to propose the Long March Route as World Heritage.

No doubt, that's a significant historical event for China, but is it of universal value?
Maybe it is more promoted by ideology than for cultural reasons.

I am wondering what kind of sites would be proposed?

Seems that Brunei aims to create a tentative list. The water village Kampong Ayer and the Sultan Omar 'Ali Saifuddien Mosque are candidates.
