The Italian Federation of Independent Winegrowers

fivi grape growers italyLast year, the Pievalta winery decided to join the Federazione Italiana Vignaioli Indipendenti (FIVI), the Italian Federation of Independent Winegrowers. The group’s mission is to represent and safeguard the interests of independent wineries by promoting quality and authenticity in Italian wines.

The federation was founded in 2008 and today counts more than 600 registered members. In order to join, winemakers — like us — must oversee every aspect of the winemaking process, from vineyard management to vinification to bottling and sale.

We share the federation’s view that wine is an agricultural product inexorably linked to the territory where it is produced. The winemaker is its protector.
