Wine Observatory Sustainability


The Wine Observatory Sustainability is a web platform aiming to collect and coordinate existing experiences on sustainability in the wine sector to foster synergies and cooperation between the various actors in the wine value chain.

The idea came from the International Congress “Sustainable Viticulture and Wine Production” (12-13 November 2013 in Milan) which one of the main outcome was to consider stakeholders consultation coordination and collaboration essential to achieve sustainability. Consequently, sharing existing knowledge and disseminating new technical solutions were considered critical to ensure that all players in the wine value chain have the tools to become sustainable.

The objectives of the observatory can therefore be summarized as follows:

  • To share and combine experiences, programs, initiatives from different countries and actors about sustainability of the wine value chain;
  • To create an international network involving all people and main organizations working to the sustainable development of wine sector to build a base for useful synergies;
  • To promote a dynamic environment where web users are actively involved in its development

For this reason WOS was developed to be:

  • Open and User friendly (open and pragmatic in its contents)
  • Scientific consistent (all the contents are included under a transparent validation process made by a panel of experts)
  • Dynamic (pointing on the pro-active role of the web users).
