A vineyard covering almost 80,000 hectares, producing almost 8.5 million hectolitres of wine, 4 million of which from DOC and DOCG areas. A handful of figures illustrating the dimensions of the Veneto winemaking industry. A heritage shared by thousands of wineries that requires appropriate protection. Winemakers realised this decades ago when they founded the first consortia to protect the origin, unique features and names of their wines. Today there are 21 Consortia serving 24 denominations, ensuring that the characteristics and production techniques to which Veneto wines owe their success are respected. The Consortium regulations are intended to ensure that wines originate from the zones declared, that they are produced with the grapes specified, in the established proportions, using traditional methods and proper aging techniques. It checks the quantities produced in the vineyards and cellars as well as monitoring the sales phase. The presence of the Consortium brands on bottles represents a guarantee of quality for consumers. This quality is a source of pride for producers and in which they have invested all their energies, contributing every day to writing the history of that great vineyard known as the Veneto
