The prestige of a privileged land devoted to wine for more than two thousand years.
Rioja was the first Designation of Origin in Spain to earn Calificada status. This was in 1991.
A rigorous and effective control system makes Rioja synonymous with the highest quality.

From 1 July 2013, movements of bulk certified wine within the production area will be subject to the Electronic Waybill (e-WB), which replaces the former hard copy waybill used to date in which the Control Board stamped a text and seal certifying the Designation of Origin. This obligation will also be extended to finished product circulating in national territory with a bonded warehouse as destination, although in this case it will not be necessary to certify the origin, as is this done on the bottle back labels or seals attached to the bottles.
The conditions of implementation of the movement control system with electronic support requires that the preparation and certificate of origin must be done immediately prior to the shipment, so no a priori intermediation by the Control Board is possible.
Consequently, fulfilling the obligations currently in force, relating to the certification of the designation of origin, will be carried out by the operator that issues the protected wine, that is, the seller, filling in space number 10 of the e-WB.
Content and spaces to be completed in the e-WB
The procedure established by the Control Board for the transfer of wines in bulk is as follows:
In the case of bulk shipments of non-protected wine, the requirements to be completed will be the same, although the authorisation will be requested by the seller or shipper, to which must be added the need for a previous telephone call, at the moment immediately prior to the expedition of each shipment.
(Do not complete space 10)
