The wine-making traditions of the Elbe

From documents preserved mainly in the archives of the Marciana, it is clear that the will of Napoleon, in the plane of a reordering of income for the island, to assign to the elban wines a quality certification of origin that would protect the uniqueness. It was he who, during his stay at the Elbe, between 1814 and 1815, he favoured a strong impetus for the production and made to take a census of 32 million screws and established the first DOC of the Elbe in 1809, where, to safeguard the economy from elba, freed from customs duties on wines of the island, fregiandogli of a certificate of origin that they would be treated as equivalent to the French wines, allowing the sales in the continent. A topic that has aroused the curiosity of many economic operators in the wine sector, so much so that some, aware of it or less of the complexity of the research work and the rigor that characterizes it, have it interpreted by your imagination and adapted to your business needs.
