CONSORTIUM

Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino

 

The Consortium of Brunello di Montalcino was founded in 1967, just after the DOC designation, as a free association of vignerons whose aim was to safeguard their product and emphasize its best qualities.

The Consortium has fostered bringing together old and new wineries, small and large alike, united by the common goals of respect for nature and the desire to make the best quality wine.
The Consortium organizes events in Italy and abroad, and facilitates the participation of member winemakers in trade fairs. It manages public relations and the image of Montalcino wines through its press office, and distributes news and information through the official website, with numerous publications in several languages.
 
Behind-the-scenes promotion is an important aspect of the business, catering to press and opinion-makers from the wine sector. Among its many activities,  the Consortium also organizes wine tastings, sampling events and tours. Important assistance is given to members vis-à-vis the standards that govern wine production.
