DOC/DOP Valdichiana toscana
History of the Consortium
The aim of the Consortium was to promote and endorse Valdichiana Virgin White Wine to be able to obtain the DOC guarantee of origin according to wine making legislation, which came about with the Decree of the President of the Republic on September 1, 1972.
Later, the Consortium, which had moved its offices from Cortona to Arezzo, strived to endorse all the types of wine that are produced in the Tuscan Valdichiana.
The corporate name of the Consortium was modified simultaneously with the first approval of the policy document and its changes. At the Constitution of 1965, the corporate name was “Valdichiana Virgin White Wine Consortium.” As a consequence of the changes to the policy document of the production of the DOC “White Virgin Valdichiana” and the new law on wine 164/92, the members came together in a special meeting and deemed it appropriate to dissolve the “Valdichiana Virgin White Wine Consortium” and create the new “Valdichiana White Virgin Protection Consortium” compliant with the new statute standards for wines.
In 2012, the Consortium obtained the appointment of “erga omnes.” In fact, with DM 11/26/2012 of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Forest Administration, the Consortium was recognized and appointed with “the protection, promotion, development, consumer information, and care of the general interests and surveillance” of the DOP wines of “Tuscan Valdichiana” as provided in points 1 and 4 of article 17 Dlgs 8/4/10 no. 61.
