South Tyrolean Wine Consortium

The consortium was founded by local winery cooperatives in autumn 2007 as a means of guarantee and protection of South Tyrolean high-quality wines. After lengthy discussions and negotiations with representatives of both wineries and free winegrowers, the official statutes and name were finally adapted and a board of administration elected in 2008.

Meanwhile, more than 100 establishments have become members, together representing over 90% of all wine production in South Tyrol. The aim of the consortium is to serve as a platform where those involved with South Tyrolean wine enterprise can discuss common issues. Moreover, the consortium should also constitute a uniform voice, both inwardly and outwardly, for the South Tyrolean wine business. In the medium term, the consortium should preserve resources and take over tasks related to general administration, from which all producers, regardless of their importance, can benefit. It is also planned to achieve official recognition of the consortium in Rome. In that way, the consortium would acquire direct institutional importance and in future be able to bring petitions independently to the Chamber of Commerce or the relevant authorities at either provincial or national level. www.suedtirolwein.com
