INDIA: Italian wine bodies to train local growers
The Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) and four wine associations from Italy's Emilia-Romagna region are to set up a research centre at the National Grape Research Institute in the Indian city of Pune.
The Italian agencies will help Indian grape growers and vineyard owners improve farming practices, adopt latest technologies and increase the quality of Indian wine to bring it to international standards.
The centre will also train farmers in modern grape cultivation techniques while winery owners will be trained in the latest techniques and technologies used in wine production in Italy.
The agreement follows 'Winebar', an enterprise between Italian provinces and the wine growing districts of Maharashtra.
