Presentation of the first results of the Soil4Wine LIFE + project at ENOFORUM 2019

Session devoted to sustainable viticulture and soil management

At the XII edition of the technical-scientific Congress of the wine sector ENOFORUM, held in Vicenza from 21 to 23 May 2019, a session was dedicated to the presentation of the progress and the first results of the Soil4Wine LIFE + project.

Prof. Stefano Poni presented at the congress the preliminary results of the Soil4Wine program (, a study on the best practices of soil management in the vineyard in order to better preserve the earthly resource, which is more and more consciously considered valuable and limited. The grassing, green manure, mulching and conservative farming practices in the Piacenza and Parma hilly areas are carefully evaluated to counteract the phenomena of erosion and compaction that can take on worrying characteristics. Afterwards, Dr. Sara Elisabetta Legler (Horta srl) presented an innovative and interactive tool for soil management in viticulture developed during the project.

The project also provides for the quantification of the advantage that a sustainably managed vineyard can give to the community, and therefore of the value of the ecosystem service it carries out, that is, how much the society should pay to the winemaker if he does his job in order to preserve and enhance the territory. The report by Dr. Alessandro Bosso from ART-ER "From wine to the soil: an example of a green economy" was dedicated to the economic and social aspects of the project.

The eleventh Italian edition of Enoforum ended on Thursday 23rd May, with 150 reports in three conference rooms during the three days of congress, results of the research and development activities carried out in recent years were presented by 84 research groups from all the wine producing countries in the world. The review of innovations also included the exhibition of 80 posters, the screening of 26 films, the tasting of about 200 experimental wines, the deepening of the topics studied at 50 corporate desks. Such a wealth of new technological proposals attracted 1,200 participants to Vicenza from all over Italy, with a growing representation of foreigners.
