PROSECCO DOC, PROFILE OF A SIGNIFICANCE
The faith community and the consortium

Prosecco therefore represents a territory characterized by precise environmental conditions, where a wine is produced according to specific rules that determine all steps in the supply chain: from the definition of the production area to labeling.
The Consorzio di Tutela therefore aims to guarantee the quality of the product and protect the consumer, but also to improve production through the promotion and protection of the “Prosecco” designation in Italy and in the world according to a specific development strategy and marketing that in recent years helped make Prosecco the most famous international sparkling wine.

Over the years, it has gradually increased its involvement in activities aimed at promoting cultural and artistic initiatives, with particular attention to visual arts, music and entertainment, and intensified its presence in the most diverse cultural sectors such as museums or the cinema world. .
