PiaceDoc: Consorzio Tutela vini DOC Piacentini

Since ancient times Piacenza has been a territory renowned for the wine, that is part of its culture and tradition.
In 1986 the Consorzio Vini D.O.C. Colli Piacentini was estabilished to valorize this priceless heritage; the task of this insitution is protecting and promoting the D.O.C. wines from the province of Piacenza.

With the purpose of valorizing the territory, it controls the local wine production and it guarantees the respect for tradition and the pursuit of highest quality.

Moreover the Consortium is involved in the support of a series of promotional and informational events in order to reinforce the image of the wines of the hills of Piacenza, not only on the local market but also in qualified international outlets .

To achieve this objective it co-operates with others local institutions such as Consorzio Piacenza Alimentare (foodstuff and beverages) and Consorzio Salumi tipici Piacentini (charcuterie).

In 1999 the Consorzio Tutela Vini Doc Colli Piacentini adopted the brand “Piace Doc”, that embodies the idea of pleasantness, designation of origin, quality and the belonging to the local culture.
