“Wineries should actively engage and collaborate with the entire surrounding farming community in order to strengthen and enhance the agricultural system of the area. In this vein, the winery must maintain a principled relationship with its associates, as well as its employees, fostering personal and professional growth. It is moreover important that the winery cooperates and shares knowledge with other producers, avoiding unfair competition.” Slow Food Manifesto for good, clean and fair wine
A conference to explore the social and culture role of winemakers as drivers of economic growth thanks to their virtuous relationship with their workers and their local communities. Many of the villages in which viticulture was developed operate according to this practice which maintains marginal areas in good health. This social and cultural role must be clear and publically declared!
We’ll also explore the theme of the commitments of winemakers toward their workers in terms of integration and cultural enrichment. This should be a common practice, just like the creation of virtuous relationships with the local community. Because making wine means building a community and growing together for the good of the local area and the quality of the wine.
