Vigne del Malina, a family business producing aged wines in the north-eastern Italian commune of Remanzacco, Udine, could modernise their processes and improve their energy efficiency thanks to the Friuli Venezia Giulia’s EAFRD Loan Fund. Vigne del Malina could purchase a new tractor as well as a sprayer which make their wine production more efficient. Their new wine ageing cellar and state of the art cooling and humidity control system help them considerably reduce their energy bills.
The EAFRD Loan Fund, a revolving fund set-up with EUR 93 million, from the Rural Development Programme of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia Region and regional resources has already helped hundreds of farmers in the Friuli Venezia-Giulia region to innovate and grow their business.
