CONCLUDED THE ONLINE AUCTION OF ORNELLAIA VENDEMMIA D'ARTISTA 2017 SOLAR ORGANIZED BY SOTHEBY'S

CONCLUDED THE ONLINE AUCTION OF ORNELLAIA VENDEMMIA D'ARTISTA 2017 SOLAR ORGANIZED BY SOTHEBY'S

THE AMOUNT THAT WILL BE DONATED TO THE SOLOMON R. GUGGENHEIM FOUNDATION OF NEW YORK FOR SUPPORT OF THE MIND'S EYE PROGRAM IS $ 315,000 (267,000 ¤).

The donation was made possible thanks to the Ornellaia Vendemmia d'Artista 2017 "Solare" project and the sale of precious bottles designed in a limited edition by the artist Tomás Saraceno. For the past twelve years, Ornellaia has been carrying out this charity project aimed at supporting foundations and museums around the world through the union of wine and art. Since the last edition, thanks to the collaboration with the Guggenheim, the project has raised funds to support an equally innovative and generous initiative: the Mind's Eye program of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Mind's Eye was created by the Guggenheim's education department precisely to give the joy of art even to blind or visually impaired people. Art, just like tasting a wine, involves all the senses, and it is this common thread that has prompted the Bolgheri maison to donate the proceeds of the annual Vendemmia d'Artista auction to this program. Giovanni Geddes da Filicaja, CEO of the Bolgheri estate, said: " the great success that the Mind's Eye program is having thanks to our donations, in addition to filling us with pride, offers us the possibility of extending the same model not only in other museums. of the Guggenheim foundation, but also in other art institutions in the rest of the world, ensuring that this excellence continues to guide museum programming for the blind and visually impaired. And not only that, our desire is to make accessible the art to all people around the world. " At the end of the auction, which took place online from 1 to 9 September and was auctioned by Sotheby's, Richard Armstrong, Director of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation declared: "Thanks to the continued support of Ornellaia, the Guggenheim was able to offer greater access to our programming and to achieve even deeper public involvement. We express our gratitude to Ornellaia for their generosity and for recognizing the importance of programs like Mind's Eye. " Ornellaia Vendemmia d'Artista 2017 "Solar" The Ornellaia Vendemmia d'Artista project celebrates and describes the character of each new vintage of Ornellaia. Every year, since the release of Ornellaia 2006, a contemporary artist signs a work of art created for the estate and a series of limited edition labels, drawing inspiration from a word chosen by the Director of the estate, Axel Heinz to describe the vintage. "Solar" is the character identified by Axel Heinz, to describe the wine born from the 2017 harvest: "it was a year of extremes, in which sun and heat played a decisive role. Adapting to the climatic conditions with softer and more precise practices , we were able to give voice to this strong and decisive personality of the vintage. " On the red thread of these words, Tomás Saraceno gave his interpretation of Ornellaia 2017 Solare. The artist drew inspiration from the alliance between the sun and inhabited living systems, in an invitation to a practice of care and renewed attention to the most important source of energy on our planet: the sun, in fact, represented in the evolution of a 'eclipse. The theme of sustainability is explored through floating spheres such as those of "PNEUMA 4.21x105", the suspended sculpture of Salmanazar, and the special thermochromic labels, which, like the ecosystems we live in, are sensitive to heat.

30 YEARS OF LUGANA DOC THE WHITE THAT CAN AGE

30 YEARS OF LUGANA DOC THE WHITE THAT CAN AGE

The celebrations for the anniversary of the Protection Consortium end today in Sirmione with an extraordinary tasting of historic vintages.

Fresh from the success of "Lugana, Timeless Harmonies", the maxi tasting that brought together over 500 #Luganalovers and 50 companies last week in Milan, the Consortium is now proposing an event homage to the territory, in collaboration with the Consorzio Albergatori Restauratori Sirmione ( CARS). To taste the best vintages of the last 30 years, to retrace together the qualitative growth of Lugana, deepen its styles and appreciate its extraordinary longevity. "We have come a long way in these 30 years of the Consortium's work, a work carried out mainly along two lines - affirms the President of the Consortium Ettore Nicoletto -. Internally, thanks also to some companies that have paved the way, the supply chain has become aware of the great value, but above all of the great potential of its territory and of the wine that is an expression of it: an awareness that was substantiated in the inclusion of Lugana Superiore in 1998 and of the Riserva and Vendemmia Tardiva in 2011. Externally, also through the promotion of the Consortium, the guidelines that now guide both the internal market and exports have multiplied, broadening the horizons and laying the foundations for the work of the coming years. Now all that remains is to look ahead, because precisely from its in the past it is clear that Lugana is a denomination that will still be able to evolve in the future ". Below is the list of rare and precious bottles for tasting, proposed by 42 wineries, from now unobtainable 1995 until the last harvest , which will be offered as an aperitif during convivial moments to toast the present and future of the DOC: - ADVANCES LUGANA DOC RISERVA BORGHETTA 2013 LUGANA DOC SUPERIORE BORGHETTA 2007 - BORGO LA CACCIA LUGANA DOC SUPERIORE 2018 LUGANA DOC 2019 - BRUNELLO LUGANA DOC 2001 LUGANA DOC BARRICATO 2001 - CA 'LOJERA LUGANA DOC HISTORICAL VINTAGE 1999 - Cà MAIOL LUGANA DOC PROVENZA 1997 - BULGARINI LUGANA DOC WINERY 2014 - WINERY OF CASTELNUOVO DEL GARDA LUGANA DOC Cà VEGAR 2019 - CASCINA LE PRESEGLIE LUGANA DOC AMRITA 2017 LUGANA DOC MET.CLAS.

VENETO 2020 HARVEST IN ADVANCE GOOD PRODUCTION

VENETO 2020 HARVEST IN ADVANCE GOOD PRODUCTION

It will be an early and medium-high production year. Pinot Grigio in difficulty, giant clusters for the Glera (Prosecco) variety. The updated details of the 2020 wine year will be provided on 11 June on the occasion of the first focus of the Wine Triptych.

To say it is Diego Tomasi of CREA-VIT of Conegliano who, together with other experts, will provide updated advances on the next harvest on the occasion of the first focus of the Wine Triptych , an event of Veneto Agriculture and Region which, due to the emergency for Covid- 19, will take place online on 11 June (10:00 am). In summary, at the moment the Veneto vineyard shows that it is in good health , the vegetation appears almost everywhere healthy and there are no problems with Downy mildew . Some concerns come from the golden Flavescence and above all from the Pinot Grigio Virosis , given that some Glera vineyards are strongly attacked by this pathology. However, the overall photograph for almost all grape varieties is good, so much so that the first indications confirm that the 2020 one will certainly not be a "unloaded" year, that is, with little production, apart from Pinot Gris and probably for some black grape vines. However, some areas of risk in which rainfall has been scarce so far, such as on the Euganean Hills and in the countryside, could run some risk. Generally, however, to date, the Veneto vineyard is in good health. Going into a little more detail, it appears that in the regional vineyards the phenological phase of the plants is now advanced and flowering is present on almost all varieties, so you can already have a relatively precise idea about the production load . If flowering was early , an early vintage will also result. This means that the harvest of Chardonnay grapes, the first variety to be harvested, should begin before August 15th, even around 5-8 August for the sparkling wine bases. We are therefore talking about an early harvest compared to the average of the last few years. Let's briefly analyze the current state of the main grape varieties grown in the Veneto. Pinot Grigio is the variety that is most in difficulty. In the Garda area it is estimated that the yields will not exceed 100/110 quintals, while they should be slightly higher in the other areas of the Veneto. The causes of this somewhat critical situation are of a different nature: first of all the scarce rainfall of this spring, the cause of a stunted budding ; things went a little better for those who were able to irrigate before the start of this important phenological phase. It should also be remembered that in 2019 Pinot Grigio had recorded an abundant production, but this is a variety that is struggling to recover after a great production effort that occurred the previous year. As if this were not enough, heavy hailstorms that left their mark, as well as the frosts of 2017, also occurred in 2019. For all these reasons, therefore, Pinot Grigio will be this year the variety that will certainly have a lower production in all over the Veneto The Glera (Prosecco) variety shows lower fertility than last year, especially in the Treviso area and in the Conegliano area, but it must also be said that the size of the bunches is exceptional, reaching as much as 30 cm. These two notes suggest that the yields will be this year in terms of the specifications. It is interesting to note that this lower fertility of the Glera has distant roots, specifically in the negative climatic trend recorded in the month of May 2019, when the buds differed. The consequences on the 2020 vintage, in particular in the Sylvoz breeding systems, are highlighted with a scarcity of bunches present in the upper part of the vegetation and a strong concentration in the final part of the arch, corresponding to the buds that have differentiated in the last part of May - beginning of June 2019 when the weather conditions had changed. In essence, the buds corresponding to the 8th, 10th, 12th bud of the bow are those that this year are the most fruitful, confirming how nature has gone hand in hand, almost day by day, with the weather conditions of last year. Even the clusters of Garganega grapes from the Veronese and Vicenza areas are of considerable size, which is why productions are expected to fall within the specification, particularly in the hill areas; probably a little higher in the plains. Therefore, scarce productions are not feared. As regards Merlot and Cabernet , production is currently estimated at -20% / -25%, especially on the Euganean Hills, in the Vicenza area and in the Lison area. Opposite situation for the red wines of Valpolicella and Bardolino for which the yields, especially for Corvinone , are in line with the specifications; the yields of Corvina and Rondinella are also moderate . Trebbiano Toscano for Custoza is also on excellent levels, so good production is expected. On the very first indications relating to the 2020 harvest, a new pill of RadioVenetoAgricoltura , registered today, is available on the YouTube, Facebook and Twitter channels of Veneto Agricoltura, with guest Diego Tomasi.

Kegs kegs for wine and beer in PET from SIPA!

Kegs kegs for wine and beer in PET from SIPA!

SIPA presents a new PET container of different capacities, designed to make kegs for wine and beer with the aim of preserving both still or sparkling wine and beer.

SIPA designs and develops 5-10-20-30 liter kegs for wine and beer which can then be produced using its linear blowing systems or integrated systems. The disposable recyclable drums, in different ways (with or without aluminum bag) preserve the quality of the still or carbonated product. The product thus maintains its organoleptic characteristics unaltered throughout the distribution chain, from filling to pouring wine at the bar. When it comes to developing an application for PET containers, SIPA has all the technological solutions. Not only the machines for producing the containers - filling them and palletising them - but also has the technology, the knowledge of materials, the experience in designing that goes from design to palletized product. SIPA can provide advice on the best resins to use, can design the optimal preforms, has the machines to produce them and is a design partner, in the development of the most functional container being able to produce prototypes and then test them in its vast laboratory. This is a unique offer that applies to both standard bottles and jars as well as large format containers. And when we say large, we mean large - we are talking about sizes up to 30 liters and beyond. SIPA can apply its experience to containers for all applications and sizes: water, CSD, beer, vegetable oils, mineral oils, detergents, chemicals, etc. The strength of SIPA lies in its ability to understand the customer's requests to develop a container that satisfies both its functional and aesthetic needs. SIPA has decades of experience in designing a container with optimal ergonomics, especially in the lifting phase: an innovative example are the 2 5 gallon Easy Grip shapes. Alongside the reusable containers with the traditional side handle, in fact, SIPA has designed two new container shapes that are more comfortable to handle given the weight that (when filled) reaches about 20 kg.

Asolo Prosecco continues to grow and adopts the harvest reserve

Asolo Prosecco continues to grow and adopts the harvest reserve

The measure was approved by the Shareholders' Meeting in order to guarantee full future availability of the product

The 'Shareholders' Meeting dell'Asolo Prosecco, which met yesterday in Asolo, passed a resolution that not only are not reduced yields per hectare, as have decided many other denominations, but that provision is made even with the upcoming harvest in 2020 to require so-called harvest reserve , assuming that the excess production of the Asol DOCG could in the future be converted to Asolo Prosecco in the event of excess demand. The demand for Asolo Prosecco from domestic and foreign markets continues to remain lively and this has prompted the Protection Consortium to adopt a measure that guarantees full future availability of products against existing contracts. Specifically, the decision taken by the Asolo Prosecco Consortium Assembly focuses on the use of the so-called countryside surplus , i.e. the 20% production tolerance that the legislation allows beyond the yield of 135 quintals per hectare envisaged by the specification. The measure now taken means that this excess can be temporarily blocked on the cellar records, and that the Consortium, if the demand continues to grow and once the members are heard, can in the future release it as Asolo Prosecco. “Given the times - comments the president of the Asolo Prosecco Consortium, Ugo Zamperoni - what we have assumed for Asolo Prosecco is a decidedly counter-trend . In recent weeks the news of the world of wine is telling us, in fact, of many restrictive measures, rather than expansive measures such as ours. The fact is that last year's harvest was qualitatively exceptional and this is helping to retain an increasingly demanding public, so much so that the charm of our hill cru is conquering new markets and new consumers, unexpected only up to a few months does. Up to 30 June, Asolo Prosecco's performance was 8.3% higher and the signals we receive seem to indicate that the growth trend continues . Given the non-homogeneous dynamics as in the past of the denominations similar to us, we need to maintain a certain competitiveness as a denomination, avoiding that an excess of demand leads to a tension on prices. Last but not least, it is necessary that all existing contracts can count on a minimum of stocks capable of satisfying any new request, something that the provision of the harvest reserve that we have taken on fully guarantees ".
