IL DOLCE VINO
The Italian food & wine industry boasts some impressive figures: 340,000 wine producers, a yearly output of 50 million of hectoliters and exports worth € 5.5 billion. Wine is one of Italy’s most iconic and recognized products worldwide. It is a legacy of centuries of know-how and craftsmanship, its richness deriving from a unique climate variety, its charm embedded in a breathtaking landscape teeming with history, culture and heritage.
This uniqueness needs to be properly communicated to open new markets and to protect the Italian products’ value against other emerging wine-producing countries. Thus, there is an emerging need to stimulate the demand for Italian wines by training people passionate about Italy and Italian wines to convey these values. In turn, this will also promote Italy and wine-producing regions as touristic destinations.
This is why the Indo-Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IICCI) has identified “wine” as a key sector to address specific objectives and targets planned within the worldwide network of Make It Sustainable Ambassador.
To attain the objective, two instruments have been developed:
ITALICS WINE CLUB
7 Wine Clubs (Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore, Pune, Chennai and Kochi) with 300 members, including sommeliers, F&B managers, importers and people passionate about Italian wines and culture
ALFIERE ITALICO WINE
A certification scheme for international promoters of Italian wines and Italian wine culture, with knowledge of Italian terroirs and of cultural, historical, artistic backgrounds related to showcase Italian wines
Through its project Il Dolce Vino, the IICCI promotes authentic Italian food, wine and gastronomy in India.
Italian food is beyond question a favourite among all the cuisines. With travel to Italy somewhat challenging these days, now is a time to curate your ideal Italian pantry. Stocking your kitchen pantry with a few basic but essential ingredients will be helpful in preparing delicious Italian recipes, but remember, the better the quality of the ingredients, the tastier and more authentic the result.
The IICCI in collaboration with four major Indian importers of Italian food brands, Fine Food, Chenab Impex, Fortune Gourmet Specialities, and Max Inc, are bringing more and more Italian Gourmet Food directly at your doorstep with safe and contact-less delivery.
