Since 1991, Rioja wines are protected by the first Calificada DO in Spain. The Designation Specifications establish the borders of the production area, the grape varieties that may be grown, maximum allowable yields, approved vinification and ageing techniques, and so on. The Control Board is a public institution in charge of fostering and controlling the quality of the region’s wines, promoting the region and defending the interests of the region’s wine sector, whose representatives constitute the Control Board Management team.
Today Rioja is one of the world’s designations of origin that offers the most guarantees regarding the quality and authenticity of its wines, and one of the few that require that all of its wines be bottled at source. The Rioja Control Board’s effective enforcement by of the strictest regulations of any wine region in the world offers the greatest assurance regarding the quality and authenticity of its wines, giving consumers a security and confidence that have been decisive in reaching its leadership position in the market.
