stated Carlo Dalmonte, President of Caviro Group, at the second MEDlab in Romagna appointment, a laboratory organized by Edmund Mach Foundation with the support of Caviro.

The event

The laboratory was held online on Friday, November 27th and is part of the actions promoted by the MEDCLIV network (Mediterranean Climate Vine and Wine Ecosystem), involving actors from the world of research and business from six European Countries which hold a large part of the Mediterranean vineyard production: Cyprus, Slovenia, Italy, France, Spain and Portugal.

The objective of MEDCLIV (and therefore also of MEDlab in Romagna) is to build networks, on a national or subnational basis, sharing ideas, solutions and best practices to address the effects of climate change in the wine-growing sector in the European Mediterranean.
