Wine investment up by 10% in 2014, sales 2015 likely stable

Wine sector bucks recession trend, Mediobanca report says

(ANSA) Milan, March 20 - Italy's thriving wine-producing sector attracted a hefty 10% increase in investment last year, bucking the lacklustre trend in the economy as a whole where investment dipped on average by 0.4%, according to a study by Mediobanca.
    The information was released on the eve of the Vinitaly fair and was based on polling of 122 wine producing firms.
    In all 82% of the wineries predicted that sales will hold steady this year, thanks in part to a significant surge by 17% of Italian exports in Asia, Mediobanca's report said
