Primary School Pupils taught how to drink wine

Schoolchildren as young as six in Italy may start receiving weekly lessons about wine if the new bill in the Italian parliament is passed into law.

Schools in Brescia in northern Italy are already learning about the country’s wine culture following an initiative launched by a group of growers and tasters, while local politicians in Puglia hope to start lessons in the autumn just as members of parliament have started debating the plan,.

“Italy is now the biggest wine producer in the world, it is our history, and we should be happy and proud to teach our children about it,” said Dario Stefano, the senator who introduced the bill.

The bill, which will see children aged between six and 13 being educated, has been supported by Attilio Scienza, a professor of wine culture at the University of Milan.

Scienza, who explained ‘you don’t drink to get drunk’, hopes the scheme will introduce wine back into homes around the country.

He added that similar initiatives in France had been successful in cutting down on young people abusing alcohol.
