Italy has been making its wine production more efficient, although the number of areas dedicated to the growing of grapes has actually fallen. Of course good weather tends to play its part too, and the weather has been kind to the Italian wine industry this year.
Italian wine is also becoming better quality. More and more Italians wines are earning the right to sport the prestigious DOC and DOP certifications on their bottle labels.
Italy’s GDP is falling, and production levels are dropping too, so it’s good to be able to write about an industry in Italy which is doing well.
Italians should take heart. When Italy puts its mind to something, it can be a world beater.
