We are pleased to announce that the “Consorzio di tutela della DOC Prosecco” has joined our worldwide network!
“Prosecco” involves around 8,159 wine estates and 269 sparkling wine producers (with over 300 million bottles produced in 2014). The production area is located in northeast Italy, in the territories of 5 provinces in the Veneto region (Treviso, Venice, Vicenza, Padua, Belluno) and 4 provinces in the region Friuli Venezia Giulia (Gorizia, Pordenone, Trieste and Udine).
The Consorzio has joined oriGIn to work for a more effective protection of GIs at the international level, in particular with respect to bilateral agreements as well as to trademark applications conflicting with GIs. This confirms an ongoing trend seeing more and more producers’ groups from different countries and sectors joining oriGIn to ensure GIs are fully recognised and effectively protected internationally.
