27 March 2023
Forty-seven wine producers from Assovini Sicilia will represent the Sicilian wine richness and uniqueness at Pavillon 2 during Vinitaly in Verona (April 2-5). Assovini Sicilia, founded in 1998, today brings together 98 wine producers and it continues to promote the Sicilian biodiversity by enhancing and supporting the current generational turnover. “Vinitaly is one of the most prestigious international showcase and a great opportunity for our wine producers – says Laurent de la Gatinais, Assovini Sicilia’s presidente. This year over 1000 top buyers selected from 68 countries are expected to come”.
Sicily is in great shape, thanks to all its DOP, IGP, consortium and associations.
“Over one year, despite all the crisis, including post-covid, the conflict in Ukraine, membership at Assovini Sicilia has grown by 10%. A sign that proves that our associationism is successful for everyone” – adds the president of Assovini Sicilia.
Assovini Sicilia highlights and enhances the current generational turnover. A new and young generation of wine producers will introduce itself through the masterclass “Next generation, the new side of the island”, led by Francesco Pensovecchio, editor in chief at Wine in Sicily. “A new generation is ready to take it over. They are dynamic young people who combine the new skills with the past legacy. The turnover can only be an enrichment of values and skills” – concludes the president de la Gatinais.
