Nestled within the picturesque landscapes of Italy's Piedmont region lies a sanctuary of wine heritage and excellence—The Consorzio di Tutela del Gavi. Since its establishment in 1993, this consortium has dedicated itself to the preservation and elevation of one of the region's most illustrious treasures: Gavi DOCG. This esteemed appellation encompasses the enchanting territory spread across 11 charming municipalities—Bosio, Capriata d'Orba, Carrosio, Francavilla Bisio, Gavi, Novi Ligure, Parodi Ligure, Pasturana, San Cristoforo, Serravalle Scrivia, and Tassarolo—in the Province of Alessandria.

Their tireless efforts are dedicated to nurturing and safeguarding the legacy of Gavi DOCG, a wine that reflects the very essence of this enchanting terroir.
But their work extends far beyond the vineyards. The Consortium's mission encompasses the preservation and enhancement of this territory as a whole—a vibrant, economically active region that wholeheartedly invests in quality and research. Their tireless qualification efforts, alongside those of all Gavi DOCG producers, are driven by the goal of strengthening this territory, ensuring its long-term health, and enhancing its environmental sustainability.
What truly sets the Consortium apart is its commitment to being an "Erga Omnes" entity, acting in favor and support of the entire chain of producers, winemakers, and bottlers. Their role is clear: to protect the essence of Gavi, preserving its millennia-long winemaking history and deep winemaking culture, and to elevate its reputation as a global standard-bearer of Piedmontese white wine excellence.
The Consortium's vision extends to the world stage, as they seek to promote and celebrate Gavi's image not only in Italy but around the globe. They engage in a multitude of activities, from participating in international fairs to organizing workshops and courses, inviting opinion leaders, journalists, and buyers, all with the aim of sharing the rich tapestry of Gavi's history and its legacy of excellence in wine production.
In a world where time-honored traditions meet cutting-edge viticulture, the Consorzio di Tutela del Gavi stands as a timeless guardian of a millennia-long winemaking heritage, a vanguard of environmental sustainability, and a beacon of excellence in the world of fine wines.
