Italian wine according to Studio Cribis

There are more than 310.000 agricultural companies operating in Italy, in the wine sector, and more than 1.800 handle industrial processing, in a sector that employs 13.000 people on an industrial level and generates 10.4 billion euros in turnover. These figures crown Italy the leading wine producing country in the world, as Cribis has highlighted in its snapshot of Italian wine companies, based on data from the Cribis Industry Monitor and the Italian economic studies consultancy agency, Nomisma Observatory. From the perspective of the Italian food industry, which is one of the pillars of the national economy, and we’re talking about 137 billion euros in turnover, of which around 33.9 billion in exports, about 62.000 operational companies and over 465.000 employees, the wine sector is definitely confirmed one of the main industries. The segment represents 9.5% of the total value of agricultural production, 7.6% of the turnover in the food industry and 14.6% of national agrifood exports. Cooperatives indeed play a fundamental role in the wine sector in Italy, and there are a total of 484 of them that together generated a turnover of 4.5 billion euros in 2016 (which translates to 13% of the turnover of all the various agrifood cooperatives) counting more than 9.000 employees (10% of the total number). Taking a look at foreign trade, Italy is decidedly a net exporter of wine, as well as the second largest exporter in the world in terms of value and volume, considering that its exports reached 5.9 billion euros in 2017, and growth in value over a period of ten years reached 68.5%. Furthermore, in the first six months of 2018, Italian wine exports have continued growing, registering + 4.1% increase in value of shipments compared to same period in 2017, and in general, a propensity for exports second only to Spain (43% versus 60%). As far as consumption trends on the domestic market are concerned, one of the most successful phenomena to be registered is the increase in the demand for organic wine. Additionally, it should be noted that 35.4% of the Italian wine production is allocated for the production of quality brand wines (DOC and DOCG). Further, Italy is the leading wine producer in the world, weighing in at 17%. The headquarters of the company are in Negrar and the company now owns a state-of-the-art facility focusing especially on sustainability. Together with its two other branches and a wine shop in Pedemonte di Valpolicella, the company counts on a total of 47 employees and its turnover last year in 2017, amounted to 48.3 million euros. The collaboration between Colognola ai Colli Winery and the Sartori company has permitted these two businesses to take advantage of their respective strengths, which are: production skills on the one hand, and distribution and marketing skills on the other. The care and dedication that characterize each and every step of the production process has allowed the Sartori Wine House and its typical Veronese wines, to be placed with the high end products of the territory.
