Change at the top of Assovini Sicily, Laurent Bernard de la Gatinais is the new President of the Association that brings together 91 Sicilian wineries of small, medium or large sizes, united by total control of the wine supply chain, the production of quality bottled wine and by the international view of the market. Bernard de la Gatinais, born in 1969, was nominated at the meeting of Wednesday 29 July by the newly elected Board of Directors. Since 2007 he has been President of Rapital

Laurent Bernard de la Gatinais takes over from Alessio Planeta who ends his term of office for 3 years. A reality that of Assovini Sicilia which in the last few years has consolidated its transformation into an association which today contributes to implementing services for Sicilian companies for the promotion of commercial brands and quality products on the national and international market.

“From the previous presidency - explains the newly elected Bernard de la Gatinais - I have received an important legacy that I wish to honor at best. The work done in recent years has not only made it possible to achieve great results in terms of constant improvement of the services offered, but has also contributed to the growth of a territory as a whole. I thank the President Planeta and the councilors all for what has been done and even more for the dedication and passion with which the mandate was carried out. The new Presidency intends to move along the line drawn up to now but also to give a strong boost to the support activity that Assovini carries out within the new SOStain Sicilia Foundation with the aim of promoting sustainability by directing member companies towards measurement constant and the reduction of the impact of agricultural practices on the territory. The goal is to share best practices aimed at respecting the ecosystem and absolute transparency towards the consumer. I also believe it is of fundamental importance to actively contribute to the topic of the formation of new strategic figures for the Sicilian wine sector within the Association itself. In fact, I think it is right to promote the professional growth of the younger members of Assovini so that in the near future they can take up the baton and face the important challenges that await us with competence and determination. "

This is the secret of the association which today brings together about 90 of the main regional wineries from which 80% of the value of Sicilian bottled wine is generated.
