The Consortium

A compact group, intended to enhance, promote and defend quality viticulture in the area.

The Consortium


The “Consorzio per la Tutela dei Vini DOC Bolgheri e DOC Bolgheri Sassicaia” is the officially recognized consortium by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food, Forestry Policies and Tourism’s for the promotion, protection and management of Bolgheri DOC and Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC wine appellations.

The Consortium was founded in January 1995 shortly after the issuance of regulations governing the production of red wine in 1994.

In 2014, the Consortium received the Ministry’s highest level of recognition that authorized it to operate Erga omnes, or on behalf of all producers.

As of 2021, the Consortium has 65 members whose vineyards represent over 97% of the overall vineyard acreage. Almost all the wineries in this territory perform all phases of production from vine and vineyard management to bottling.
