CONSORZIO PER LA TUTELA DELL’ASTI DOCG
Consorzio per la tutela dell’Asti was founded in 1932, and it has a very specific goal: to do everything necessary to protect, enhance and promote, the Asti and Moscato d’Asti, both in Italy and worldwide. These two excellences represent the spearhead of high quality “sweet” wines and sparkling wines and a vast expertise of culture, memories, traditions, knowledge, stories of entire families who have dedicated their whole life of sacrifices to the vineyards.
Asti and Moscato d’Asti DOCG symbolize a strong, tenacious Italy, pursuing its ambition and trying to spread its territory and its values all over the world. In this way, customers can be fully aware of the importance of their choice.
Today the Consorzio per la tutela dell’Asti brings together more than 216 companies, including wineries, sparkling wine houses, cooperative wineries, winemaking companies and 1,800 wine producers.
