Valpolicella, Prosecco and Barbaresco, three prestigious Italian wine designations, united under a new brand to transmit Italian values of cooperation and improve international promotion.
The new born network, named The Wine Net – Italian Co-op Excellence (, has been established by three influential Italian wine cooperatives from three prestigious appellations of Veneto and Piedmont: Valpolicella, Prosecco and Barbaresco.

Protagonists of this project, the first of its kind in Italy involving wine cooperatives, are three important and qualified brand names: Cantina Valpolicella Negrar (Verona), Cantina Produttori di Valdobbiadene – Val D’Oca (Treviso) and Cantina Pertinace (Cuneo).
These three historic and important wine cooperatives decided to establish the network on the one hand to firmly demonstrate the values of Italian wine cooperation and on the other hand to increase the penetration of the major international markets.

“It is an open network – Daniele Accordini, Aldo Franchi and Cesare Barbero, respectively CEOs of Cantina Valpolicella Negrar, Cantina Produttori di Valdobbiadene – Val D’Oca and Cantina Pertinace, have stressed – which has the goal of soon spreading to other cooperatives coming from the best Italian wine-growing areas, with a historical vocation and quality productions”.

Why The Wine Net?
In the light of current dynamics in the international markets and the evolution of wine consumption styles, it is more and more needed for wineries to adapt their structure in order to answer current needs and effectively intercept opportunities.
Among possible ways of facing the current scenario, the network of wineries (complementary companies decide to coordinate their activities) is the more suitable model, found by The Wine Net companies.

Identity & Mission
The Wine Net is a network which puts together the excellence of Italian wine cooperatives. The network of cooperatives has a fundamental and demonstrable mission: maximum commitment in the qualification of the products and maximum transparency in communicating the activities.
As a “modern enterprise”, the network wants to intercept current and future market opportunities, starting from the development of international markets, and a better presence on the Italian market, considered strategic for the competitiveness of wineries.
