Prosecco Superiore: growth goes hand in hand with sustainability

Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore confirms its place as Italy’s best-loved D.O.C.G. sparkling wine.
Demonstrating this fact are the figures of the Study Centre of the District for Conegliano
Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore, presented on Saturday 15th December 2012 at Solighetto di Pieve di Soligo in the Province of Treviso.
In spite of the difficult situation currently affecting the Italian economy, the Denomination reveals a good state of health. An examination of its figures for 2011 confirms the trend which, from 2003 to 2011, has shown growth in volume terms of 74%, achieving a market of almost 70 million bottles and an increase in value of 68% compared to 2003, with sales of over 420 million Euros. The market is therefore rewarding the historic production zone for Prosecco which is, nonetheless, well
aware of its future commitments. Foremost among these is to make viticulture more sustainable from an environmental point of view.
