The Control Board views positively the experimentation with cultural practices that represent an innovation in the cultivation of vines and can contribute a qualitative improvements to the grapes that entail producing wines of better quality in the Wine Region. So requests in this respect do not deviate from this objective, it considers necessary to set action standards that allow, on the one hand, to report favourably on plantation requests and, on the other, to guarantee the follow-up of the trial in its different phases (cultivation, ripening, production and vinification).

You are hereby notified for such effects as may obtain.
Logroño, 12 May 1999.
