Natural, sustainable, sociable, this is the claim that accompanies Acino and repeats the dean’s words Pietro Caterinidirector of one of the oldest winery schools in Italy: “These events help to create the network, join forces, bring us together and bring us together, and share the growth goals of Irpinia, which must have a fixed point, the wine culture The oenology school has planted fourteen resistant vines that do not need to undergo treatments, in the microvinification laboratory only natural yeast and spontaneous fermentation are used, also we have embarked on this experimental path, in parallel with the production of conventional wines, to get closer to the needs for respect and protection of the environment and open us to a new horizon “.

For the conspiracy to protect Irpinia wines it is Maura Sarno – owner of the vineyard “Tenuta Sarno 1860” – to speak: “The consortium now has seven hundred members working together to protect the denominations, aware that natural wines are the tradition of our territory, which is passed down from generation to generation, through the ages, speaks a familiar, genuine language. The promotion must be carried out jointly, but also taking into account the gaps, in order to fill them and really get going on the path of tourism ».

We have everything the connection between the territorial institutions in dialogue with each other and with the central government can do much to make Irpinia known. It is no longer time for divisions or conflicts, working towards the territory, making it richer and making it known to the world is crucial to creating development assets. Let’s start with wine, let’s make it the focal point of building opportunities, let’s do it in chorus, through a single voice, wine is after all amalgamation, sharing and an important action for the development of tourism can start from this table “.

The Superintendence official, the art historian, spoke about art and culture in the magnificent Bourbon Prison complex Paola Apuzza who has made a great effort to improve the territory during his career: “For years I have struggled to create a cultural awareness, we are fortunate to be surrounded by magnificent landscapes, to have a naturalistic heritage strongly influenced by the vineyards , representing Irpinia’s identity and culture, finding ourselves together to reflect on the province’s potential makes us hope to pursue an overall discourse on the wine’s potential, set in a prestigious historical-artistic context, it’s time for everyone to take a big step forward, in the same direction. “
