Zaia in Friuli to celebrate the Prosecco
I promised that I would have come here for the entrance in force of the new normative on the Prosecco and here I am to celebrate it with you: we have the protection of the Prosecco name as designation of protected origin, declared the Minister during his visit to Prosecco, in province of Trieste, where he planted a "Glera" vine. "I could easily make a speech in the Trieste dialect, that is similar to the one spoken in my home town of Treviso, because I am a Minister of the territory. I promised that I would have come here for the entrance in force of the new normative on the Prosecco and here I am to celebrate it with you: we have the protection of the Prosecco name as designation of protected origin".
This declared the Minister of food forest and agricultural policies Luca Zaia during his visit to Prosecco, in province of Trieste, where he planted a "Glera" vine. At the ceremony there were also the regional councilor for agricultural resources Claudio Violino and the regional councilor to the local Autonomies and territorial Planning Federica Seganti.
The Minister Zaia chosen the place from which the wine takes its name, to speak about the ministerial decree that recognized the new Doc Prosecco and the two historical Docg "Conegliano Valdobbiadone - Prosecco" and" Colli Asolani - Prosecco" or "Asolo-Prosecco".
"I thank you for your courage in supporting this plan - continued the Minister - you will be among the few provinces to plant a vine called 'Glera' and to produce a wine called Prosecco. In this Region there are 200 hectares cultivated but we can grown together and with councilor Violino we are in agreement to invest a part of the 314 million euro of the Cmo wine towards this direction".
"As I have said, the day I became Minister , I work with my shoes well planted in the ground because I go in person to visit the companies so that I can personally hear the problems of the farmers and I can try and solve them with them. The other priority of my administration is to control and to defend the honest consumers and producers. For this reason - has added the Minister - I have re-united the Inspectorate of Quality Control, the Anti-fraud Police, the Harbor Master's Offices of the Coastguard, and the State Forestry Corps, and told them: from today the music has to change we will no more chase pensioners in the countryside but the agrifood criminals. I invite you to be consumers that are aware, that buy seasonal products tied to the territories , reminding you that if a peasant disappears the history of a place disappears with him".
