    Wine Tourism can be Sustainable Cultural Tourism. Visitors to wineries and vine yards have a greater awareness of sustainability. Destinations of wine producing regions can develop tourism products and services.
    The proposed project addresses the following issues:
    – role of innovation in the future of wine tourism
    – sustainability of wine tourism and contribution of wine tourism to sustainability
    – opportunities through green and digital transformations to enhance the wine tourism value chain.

    There are 3 key objectives in wine tourism development: Sustainability, Creativity and Communication, with testing of new tourism products.

    Main Outputs: Testing of Innovations, Capacity building, New Wine Tourism Products and Services tested and verified in partner regions

    – Preserving Eno Heritage in all its forms
    – Developing and promoting Wine Tourism with innovations
    – Testing Actions for new Wine Tourism Products and Services
    – Cultural Tourism Synegies exploited
    – Webinars, Thematic Workshops, Study Visits, Training, Capacity Building, Co-creation
    – Dedicated Study Tour (for policy-makers)
    – Staff Exchanges / Peer Reviews
    – Joint Promotion & Exhibitions on wine products
    – Sustainable Cultural Tourism Relaunching based on Wine and Vines (post-pandemic).
    1. Eno Heritage Preservation and Promotion
    2. Wine Tourism Development, Testing, Evaluation and Promotion
    3. Quality on Wine Tourism operations
    4. Sustainable and Responsible Tourism development around wine and vines
    5. Creative Tourism development in Wineries and Vineyards
    6. Stakeholder engagement throughout
    7. Capacity building for partners’ staff, policy makers and key stakeholders, regarding sustainable tourism products development around wine and vines.

    I represent EU Media Srl, the reference in Italy on funding news and opportunities (call for proposals and tenders search engine) for citizens, companies, NGOs and local governments.

    Given our more than ten years expertise in the field of European funds, I would like to propose our client partner in the consortium.
    It is a local representation of the Italian General Confederation of Enterprises, Professions and Self-Employment, the largest business representation in Italy, gathering more than 700,000 enterprises.
    Our partner represents some provinces in a region of southern Italy, which is in great need of interventions (It intends to promote gastronomic, goldsmith and tourism districts). The project you mentioned, being a great development opportunity in the middle of the Mediterranean, would guarantee special attention since southern Italy is particularly targeted by institutions, including European ones.
