Tuscany proposes a plan “for the landscape”
This is the most talked-about subject in Tuscany at the moment. In short, the Region has proposed a landscape plan of over three thousand pages (!), in which, among other things, it would be forbidden to plant vineyards in ideal vinegrowing areas, which the Region (meaning the administrative body) considers should be given over to other crops or pasture so as to not alter the balance of the landscape of the wonderful Chianti and Brunello region…
I know, this is absurd for some readers: it is not the owner of the land who will decide wheteher to follow his dream of making a great wine or not. It will be a bureaucrat in an office, more or less. This proposal has been such a shock that perhaps for the first time in history, all the Consortia for the protection of Tuscan wines agree to oppose it.
