Would it be easier to start listing wine growing regions that aren't trying to become World Heritage Sites?
I didn't realise that Prosecco
has sneaked onto the Italian t-list.
This one really does seem odd. In terms of it's classification as a quality wine region it is pretty recent (2009), and the set up of the region is something of a fudge. Even the style of wine that it produces has changed markedly in the last 30 years, to basically market itself as a cheap alternative to champagne.
So I guess that the idea is to use a well know wine to get a rural area onto the list.
What would this add to the Italian list, let alone the World Heritage list?
