“Future challenges are not only on the shelves or between the lines of European Union regulations, rather, they are called environmental sustainability and climate change. This is why we are ready to make our professional contribution to the path the Ministry of Agriculture has begun on the harmonization of the Italian definition of sustainable wine, which must be supported by a credible certification and control system and extended to the European level”. Ernesto Abbona, head of the Barolo Marchesi di Barolo label, explained to WineNews his goals since he has been re-elected President of the Italian Union of Wines, which he will guide for another three years, until 2022
“Finally, we will continue our battles for the defense of the image and the culture of wine and, together with Ceev - Comité Vins we will work on the new phase of Wine in Moderation, which will soon be re-launched. The three-year period ahead of us will definitely be challenging, but I know I can count on a council capable of great teamwork in every situation, confirming Unione Italiana Vini the main institutional reference for the wine world at the national level”. Joining him will be his deputy vice president, Lamberto Frescobaldi, who will chair the Federation of Winegrowers and Wine Producers, and there will also be his Vice President Sandro Sartor, who will lead the Federation of Trade and the Wine Industry. Two winegrowers and wine producers, Marina Cvetic, who in Abruzzi leads the historic Masciarelli winery, and Giuseppe Fugatti, owner of the Cantina Roeno in Valdadige (Veneto), are among the new entries, while the experience of Michele Bernetti, at the helm of the Marche brand, Umani Ronchi, will enhance the Trade Federation.
There will be many issues to be dealt with during the three-year period 2019-2022, at the international level, ranging from CAP post 2020, whose budget is linked to that of wine’s, international agreements such as the newly signed EU-Mercosur treaty, which we are waiting for details of the wine sector results. And, further, there will be just as many domestic issues. For instance, the proposals to modify the Consolidated Law on Vine and Wine (law 238), the revision of the number of denominations as well as the development of wine tourism will be central, together with the study of overall strategies to be adopted to give companies a concrete opportunity for growth. Additionally, on a promotional key, the Association will continue the work of the “technical table” set up with Agenzia ICE, to improve activities in support of Italian wine on higher added value markets, on developing ones and in Europe itself, to enhance the positioning of Made in Italy productions.
