A new course, one of a kind, will open in October for the students of the University of Padua: it is the “Master of Science” in “Sustainable Agriculture”, in English, recognized by the University of Padua and University of Georgia in the United States. Graduates will be able to add a double degree in their curriculum: Italian and American.
Recently I visited LA CAPPUCCINA Winery in Soave in the Veneto, which happened to coincide with their 30th anniversary since going organic. This doesn’t seem like such a big deal these days with so many wineries going organic, biodynamic or sustainable, but thirty years ago this was an anomaly and they were harbingers of a major change in grape-growing and wine production.
It is now thirty years since we made the decision to give shape to our great dream, to embark on the road, then almost unknown, of Organic Agriculture.
It was 1985, and the wine you could not even call it Wine Organic wine from grapes grown with organic farming methods.
