Franciacorta is the result of the art of knowing how to create harmony between the ancient knowledge handed down over the generations and the technological evolutions. The perpetuation of tradition in the hands of curious vintners who are always ready to work on every single bottle. Thanks to a production method regulated by strict and scrupulous norms, this wine has become synonymous of absolute quality, obtained by using grapes of noble vines, harvested by hand, naturally refermented in bottle, and subjected to a slow aging on yeasts - not less than 18 months, 30 for the Millesimati and 60 months for the Riserve.
The Oltrepò Denomination is the third largest of the Italian Denominations. It is the hilly part of the area of the same name located south of the Po River and crosses the province of Pavia from west to east. Just one hour from Milan. On the hills of Oltrepò, strongly characterized by a remarkable biodiversity, is produced 62% of Lombardy's wine. The Consorzio Tutela Vini dell'Oltrepò Pavese safeguards and promotes 7 DOC wines and one DOCG.
Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino
Founded in 1967 after the recognition of the Doc, the Consortium for the safeguarding of Brunello di Montalcino wine today unites 214 members (representing 98.2% of the production) for a safeguarding that extends over a vineyard of more than 4,300 hectares in the district of Montalcino, in favor of four of the seven DOP wines of the territory. Brunello di Montalcino stands out among them all - it has become an international brand as well as being the first red DOC in Italy and the only Italian wine included among the 12 labels of the 20th century by Wine Spectator, followed by Rosso di Montalcino, Moscadello di Montalcino and Sant'Antimo. Objective: to put into system an agricultural community among the most virtuous on a national level and among the richest in the world, with an economy founded for half of its businesses by agricultural companies and also able to absorb a large part of the labor force of the neighboring municipalities. An ecosystem unique for its biodiversity and its morphological characteristics, driven by wine and in particular by Brunello, which sees in the Consortium the synthesis of numerous activities ranging from protection to promotion: from the quotas of the plants to the control of the yields, from the initiatives of brand positioning in Italy and abroad to the creation of synergies between the different realities of the local food chain.

Active since more than 90 years, the Consortium for the Protection of Valpolicella Wines is an associative reality including viticulturists, winemakers and bottlers of the production area of Valpolicella wines, a territory which includes 19 municipalities of the province of Verona. The Consortium has important institutional roles: it deals with the promotion, valorization, information about Valpolicella wines and territory, protection of the brand and viticulture in the production area of Valpolicella wines, vigilance, safeguard and defense of the appellation. The almost daily contact with the single production realities, from the family-run ones to the big groups of the sector, qualifies the Consortium as an important subject and as a sure reference for anyone who wants to know more about Valpolicella and its famous wines.
Land, sweat, sacrifice, courage, ingenuity, tradition, nature: there is no precise moment in history in which the indissoluble bond between the countryside worked by man and what is necessary to produce "Chianti" wine has been shown. The origin of the concept "Chianti", even before the wine product, is lost in the night of time: a long and impervious path made of people, struggling cities, art and breathtaking views. From the ancient civilizations that inhabited this region, to the medieval times, to the Renaissance and the modern era, viticulture in Tuscany has never stopped. In 1927, a group of viticulturists established the "Consorzio del Vino Chianti", one of the first associations of wine producers in our country, with the mission of protecting and promoting Chianti D.O.C.G. wine "as it is known in Italy and abroad for its ancient tradition". Since 1932, the territory falling under the aegis of the Consortium has consisted of six provinces, dotted with cities of art and culture that are among the most beautiful in the world: Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Pisa, Pistoia and Prato. This "love story" between man and nature, now involves about 3,000 companies spread over an area of approximately 15,500 hectares, which each year expresses an average production of nearly 100 million bottles. You read that correctly: one hundred million bottles per year.
The Consortium is a private body of public interest and brings together all categories of producers: wine growers, wine makers, bottlers. There are three themes around which it focuses its work: protection, promotion and sustainability.
Consorzio Lugana works for the safeguarding and valorization of Lugana wines and of their territory which extends for more than 2500 hectares. We are located in the spectacular lower Garda area that includes the municipalities of Sirmione, Desenzano del Garda, Peschiera del Garda, Pozzolengo and Lonato del Garda. The associates are a little more than 200 between vine growers, wine makers and bottlers.
Lugana takes advantage of the beneficial temperate microclimate of the lake and comes from clayey soils thanks to which the native Turbiana grape expresses its full potential. Today Lugana is one of the most successful Italian white wines.
Founded in 1990 as an institute of vigilance, defense and promotion, the Voluntary Consortium for the Protection of Lugana carries out a systematic and intense activity of protection and valorization of the denomination of origin. It also promotes the communication and the valorization of the Lugana brand through the participation to the most important national and international fairs and the organization of events aimed at making Lugana's image and quality better known. The Consortium is also in charge of safeguarding Lugana from unfair competition.

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo, Pecorino, Passerina, Trebbiano d'Abruzzo are just some of the many proposals coming from the greenest region of Europe and protected by Consorzio Tutela Vini d'Abruzzo. The territory of Abruzzo is naturally suited for viticulture, located between the Adriatic Sea and the massifs of Gran Sasso d'Italia and Majella. Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is the most representative wine of the regional enological culture and it is qualified as one of the greatest Italian red wines. Of absolute importance is also the production of rose wines, which are able to combine structure and freshness, such as Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo. At the same time, the knowledge and the spreading of other autochthonous wines is increasing, in particular white wines. Trebbiano d'Abruzzo stands out, a white wine of great potentiality and versatility, so much it can be appreciated both young, in its pleasantness, and in its longer and more complex version. Besides Trebbiano, there is also a production of still white wines of great importance, such as Pecorino, which reaches expressions of great value capable of exalting its fruit and bouquet, as well as Passerina, Cococciola and Montonico. Among the most recent innovations, there is also the increasing success of a production of sparkling wines made from autochthonous grapes, mainly obtained with the Martinotti method, to which Abruzzo is dedicating great attention.
Founded in 1932, the Consortium for the protection of Asti has a very clear objective: to carry out everything deemed necessary for the protection, enhancement and promotion, in Italy and worldwide, of Asti and Moscato d'Asti. These two excellences represent the diamond point in the field of quality "sweet" wines and sparkling wines and represent an immense baggage of culture, memories, traditions, knowledge, stories of entire families that, to their vineyards, have dedicated a whole life of sacrifices and dedication. Asti and Moscato d'Asti docg symbolize the image of a strong Italy, tenacious, stubborn in pursuing the ambition and the desire to make a territory and its values known, informing consumers all over the world in order to make them fully aware of the value of their choice. Today the Consortium gathers more than 216 companies, including wineries, sparkling wine producers, cooperative wineries and wine makers and 1.800 wine producers.
