FederDOC or the Confederazione Nazionale Consorzi Volontari per la Tutela delle Denominazioni dei Vini Italiani (Italy’s National Confederation of Voluntary Consortia for the Protection of Denominations of Origin–DOCs, DOCGs) is Italy’s national association grouping together the country’s wine consortiums and overseeing the certification of territory-specific appellations. Federdoc was established in 1979. It represents almost the entirety of Italy’s Protected Denominations, supporting them at the institutional level. It promotes the protected denominations with information and enhancement campaigns. Federdoc’s tagline is: “the denomination of origin” of the Italian consortia (regional wine consortiums).
