The UN said Soave's traditional vineyards have provided income to more than 3,000 families for 200 years

The UN said the Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems (GIAHS) advisory group last month designated Soave's traditional vineyards a GIAHS. The group also named the grape and grape-based production system in Jowzan Valley, Iran, a GIAHS.

"Soave traditional vineyards are an agro-economic system that have provided income to more than 3,000 families for 200 years," the Food & Agriculture Organisation said. "This system has kept traditional ways to train the vines and succeeded in distributing an income and security to the various stakeholders involved in the production chain, such as grapes producers, wine producers and bottlers, even during the most difficult periods."

The UN describes GIAHS as more complex than heritage sites. A GIAHS is a "living, evolving system of human communities in an intricate relationship with their territory, cultural or agricultural landscape or biophysical and wider social environment".

Other GIAHS include the saffron heritage of Kashmir, India, and Andean agriculture in Peru.
