New challenges for Prosecco wine between sustainability and market

In the latest years Prosecco wine has experienced a growing recognition in National and International markets with impressive economic results for the whole Italian wine-sector. The results that were achieved reward the efforts of all those who contributed to this outstanding success, from the National public Institutions (Ministry, Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia Regional Governments), to the enterprises of this sector and to the research community. Next years will predictably be as demanding for Prosecco wine as the latest ones and will require a strong commitment from all those belonging to the industry, both for ensuring competitiveness in European and Northern American markets and for seizing the new opportunities yielded by the Asia Pacific Area, and for what pertains to the image of its production, especially in terms of its sustainability.

The scenario for European wine-growing, between climate crisis and customers’ new demands
Wine-growing in our country is going through a phase of profound changes and in the latest years new trends are surfacing that will have a strong impact on the structural characteristics of Italian wine-growing in the next years.Europe and especially Italy, have striven to react through the rediscovering of native grapes and the enhancement of the evocative contents of the terroir, but only a few varieties and Designations achieved success. Our wine-making is effectively becoming polarized on three or four Northern and Central Italian regions.The use of precision wine-making and of space economy have proven to be strategic, allowing to develop predictive models to be applied to a number of cultivationchoices. Additionally we passed from a generic indication of environmental protection to the so-called sustainable agriculture currently at the basis of the new Community legislation that will dictate in the next years the agricultural employment of pesticides.The future of wine-making will not contemplate the separation between production and consumption: sustainable development must be considered as a target that can be reached by means of scientific research.
