The oldest Italian wine association UIV, based in Milan, was founded in 1895. The members are mainly made up of larger ones producers
and commercial bottlers together. Since 1996, there is the subordinate association "Confederazione Italiana della Vite del Vino", in which organizations from all areas of viticulture and wine trade are united. The UIV publishes the most widespread Italian wine publication "Corriere Vinicolo" and organizes the two trade fairs SIMEI (Salone Internazionale Macchine by Enologia e Imbottigliamento) and ENOVITIS (Salone delle Tecniche per la Viticoltura). Both show oenological equipment such as bottling lines.
