TRENTINO SPRINT Azienda Speciale della C.C.I.A.A. di Trento

TRENTINO AT PROWEIN 2012: FOR THE FIRST TIME WITH 17 TRENTINO PRODUCERS IN HALL 3/D30

The Trentino region in northern Italy will be taking part once again this year in the PROWEIN trade fair on 4 - 6 March in Düsseldorf, this time with a new spacious, 400 sq.m. stand in pavilion 3/D 30. A total of 17 wine cellars, cooperatives, and sparkling wine and spirit producers from Trentino will be presenting their flagship products, for the very first time together, on the new collective stand in the pavilion allocated to Italy. The stand has been fitted out by „Trentino Sprint“.

The ProWein trade fair is of enormous importance strategically for the Trentino winemaking industry as almost 34% of exports do in fact go to Germany! Germany is second only to the United States followed by UK for the quantity of Trentino wine exported.

Vineyards in Trentino lie between 200 and 800 m. above sea level and cover roughly 10,000 hectares – which corresponds to only 2% of the area under vine in the whole of Italy. Nevertheless, 85% of Trentino’s wines have obtained Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC – Controlled designation of origin) status. The region is therefore renowned for the great emphasis it places on quality. 70% of the wines produced here are white while 30% are red.

The region’s leading product is TRENTODOC spumante, one of the most widely consumed Metodo Classico sparkling wines in Italy. Indeed, one in every 3 bottles drunk here is a TRENTODOC. What’s more, 40% of Italian Metodo Classico sparkling wine comes from Trentino and bears the exclusive brand name, which is its hallmark. So when we talk about TRENTODOC, we know it can only be Metodo Classico. There are currently 37 sparkling wine producers marketing around 90 labels and producing 9 million bottles a year.
The main consumers of Trentino’s wines, apart from Italy, are the USA, Germany and the United Kingdom.

Cantina di Aldeno Ferrari F.lli Lunelli
