The new Viñedo Singular geographical indication designates wines from particular vineyards or estates and is directly linked to the terroir, which it aims to identify and valorise on the label, tied to the quality requirement that they be excellent wines.
As in the case of wines from a specific zone, the right to use the name of the town on the label has been recognised for almost 20 years; more precisely, since 1999. The new regulation will provide more visibility to this geographical indication.
EXCEPTION: Up to 15% from bordering municipalities and long-standing ties with the vineyard dating back at least ten years.
Designation Regulations recognise the existence of three sub-areas or sub-zones since 1970: Rioja Alavesa, Rioja Alta and Rioja Baja (now called Rioja Oriental). Under the new zona (zone) term, the Control Board has updated the regulations on the visibility of this indication on wine labels which were implemented in 1998.
EXCEPTION: Up to 15% from bordering municipalities in a different zone and long-standing ties with the vineyard dating back at least ten years.
