Here's the news from the site of the autonomous province of Trento. And here is the audio statement of Tiziano Mellarini: LISTEN. In later comments.
The “Wine plan”, the set of initiatives from fielding to revive the wine making thirty, formalised in the so-called “document of the wise” approved by the provincial government last August, enters phase two. This morning, the provincial government has welcomed, with a concentrated, the proposal of the Councillor to agriculture Tiziano Mellarini concerning the implementation of the plan. In the document adopted today provides for the establishment of two technical groups in support of trentino wine sector: the first will define criteria and actions to rebalance, through paths of higher quality, wine production and local grappa with a view to enhancing their territorial; the second is responsible for the coordination of joint promotion of Trentino wines on markets.
“What we intend to do – summarizes the assessor Mellarini – you make a new governance model in the industry, both in terms of production vitienologica that the promotion in conjunction with the Trentino tourist proposal”.
With regard to the first profile, the production, the starting point is the consideration that the wine is “an element that cannot be detached from the local identity”. Grape and land are intimately connected and for productions in Trentino is becoming increasingly important that they are able to differentiate themselves on the global market. However, unable to compete with growing areas that rely on large surfaces and lower production costs, it becomes necessary to focus on quality, privileging the vines and other varieties more than others express a strong link with the territory.
The second important aspect is that of promoting, for which – among other things – It is hoped a financial co-responsibility operators in actions to achieve. “It becomes urgently – the document approved by the Governing Council today – concentrate under a single Director communication and actions industry promotion”. Trentino spa Marketing, Chamber of Commerce and the Consortium will coordinate between their Wines “in order to increase the uniformity of the evaluations and the choices”. And strong must be also the engagement between wine and tourism.
This composition that will have two engineering teams.
