The Development Company of Parnon S.A. through the new Programming Period CLLD/LEADER 20142020 aims to transnational cooperation with countries implementing LEADER local programs. The aim of this cooperation is the emergence and spread of wine culture, as well as the interconnection of the tourist identity of the regions with their traditional products that have quality, reputation and are directly linked to the region for the development of gastronomic tourism.

Project idea summary: 

Malvasia wine is probably the most important wine in history! This dark, sweet white wine from raisined - sun dried grapes was originally produced in Greece (Peloponnese, Cycladic islands and Crete) and eventually it was being transported by ships to Venice-Italy and from there to the "salons" of Europe, becoming the most famous wine in Europe in the years of the trade republic of Venice.
Many areas in Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Spain and Portugal produce their own type of Malvasia, as an evolution of the original Malvasia of the middle ages.
We aim to revive the myth of Malvasia wine by identifying the production areas and design actions to support and promote the history and the value of the wines and, finally, combine with the special characteristics and attractions of the areas to create new touristic value, new products and enhance productivity of Malvasia wines.
