Preserving the "Vineyard Sicily", producing Sicilian vines with certification attesting to their varietal identity and health integrity, giving value and support to the quality of Sicilian wines: these are the objectives of the "Valorisation of viticultural germplasm" project promoted and supported by the Consorzio di Tutela Vini Doc Sicilia in partnership with the Regional Department of Agriculture of the Sicilian Region, the University of Palermo and the "F. Paulsen" Regional Center for the conservation of viticultural and agricultural biodiversity. "The Consortium's mission has always been to strengthen the identity of Sicilian wines, improving their quality, image and positioning on the market - comments the president Antonio Rallo -. The project in support of the" Vineyard Sicily "therefore becomes central to us. for the development of Sicilian enology and we are proud to be able to support it alongside the other institutions involved, whom I thank for their collaboration and support. Every day we work to better communicate the 'Sicilia Doc' system as an excellent producer of contemporary wines, to alongside our producers and our companies so that they can be increasingly competitive on the reference markets ". With almost 98 thousand hectares, the Sicilian vineyard is the largest in Italy, in Europe it has the same extension as the German vineyard and in the world it measures three times the vineyard of New Zealand, even surpassing the South African one. Today Sicily is the first region in Italy by area under organic vines and the key words of the Sicilian wine system are sustainability and respect for the environment. In Sicily, over 90 million DOC Sicilia bottles were produced last year, 64 million in the first 8 months of this year which represent the great and painstaking work of the almost 8 thousand producers to whom the Consortium offers daily support. Sicily has always represented the crossroads between Europe, Africa and the Middle East: each bottle offers a global experience, also the result of a territorial heterogeneity that does not exist elsewhere, capable of evoking a rich mosaic of culture, nature and flavors.
