The Urban Vineyards Association (U.V.A.) has been established with the aim of safeguarding the rural, historical and landscape heritage of the urban vineyards as well as of promoting their cultural and touristic value, whilst at the same time making them productive for the community and for the future and respecting the environment through social and sustainable wine practices.

A vineyard may in fact be more than a gentle hillside. It can indeed be urban: the unexpected green amidst the concrete jungle, a green made of tradition and soil, turning the borders of a city into horizons within the city. Such are the urban vineyards, unique vine plantations within a metropolitan area, which represent an extremely valuable agricultural, historical and cultural heritage. The vines cultivated in the city are often very rare varieties that survived through the centuries, without being replaced by more productive or commercial vines. These small urban vineyards are truly biodiversity treasures.Thus, an association comes into existence, which gathers them into an international network, capable of fostering projects of historical recovery and cultural promotion.

The tradition of the soil within the futurism of the city. The silent beauty of urban grapes watching unwatched.

Grapes for grapes’ sake, and grapes for the city’s sake.

Urban grapes are indeed an eco-management tool, in that they contribute to urban sustainability with their prominent cultural and natural heritage. Doing more with less.

A simple yet significant contribution to the city, just like a glass of wine to the table.
