Conegliano Valdobbiadene Academy”: the first online school for Prosecco Superiore
Our Valdobbiadene Conegliano Consortium has presented a project of outstanding educational value: its first Conegliano Valdobbiadene Academy course. It is a virtual tool with the goal of raising awareness about the culture of Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore and its D.O.C.G. recognition, so as to underline the difference in quality compared to the range of “clones” that often unwittingly cause confusion due to a lack of information. Therefore, the first course of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Academy is for anyone who wants to improve their knowledge of the singular, distinctive characteristics that make the denomination unique and exclusive due to its high-quality nature.
Follador has given this project its full backing because it recognizes the potential of social networks as valuable communication tools that can be used to educate countless wine enthusiasts. Providing the opportunity to understand the difference in terms of quality of SUPERIORE D.O.C.G. plays a crucial part in emphasizing the uniqueness of the Valdobbiadene and Conegliano area.
Follador is a member of the Valdobbiadene Conegliano Consortium, so it is proud to present the following extract from the official Conegliano Valdobbiadene Academy press release: “The new technology available today provides an effective means of interacting with consumers, journalists and members of the trade all over the world, and a modern wine like Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore certainly cannot afford to ignore it,” stated Innocente Nardi, the President of the Protection Consortium. “Therefore, we have put together a completely unparalleled project that will fittingly present Italy’s most popular sparkling wine all over the world, even to people who are unable to visit the area.” The Conegliano Valdobbiadene Academy’s 12 minutes of virtual presentations by local teachers will give an overview of the denomination, the characteristics of the territory and the vines, the production process, the tasting technique, and the possibilities for matching the wine with food.
The Conegliano Valdobbiadene Academy has been created for educational and informative purposes, especially for people who are unable to visit the local area in person. The video allows them to go on a virtual tour of the production area. In addition, a test will soon be available to allow viewers to see how much they have learned.
This first video marks the start of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Academy. It offers the key information about the wine in three languages and is intended for all lovers of Prosecco Superiore, especially students who want to broaden their knowledge and gain a diploma. There will be a more in-depth look at a range of matters relating to Prosecco Superiore in future video lessons.
Follador is delighted to be involved in this interesting, dynamic initiative due to its role as one of the Valdobbiadene area’slongstanding companies and ambassadors.
