Current Events

During the celebration of the Madrid International Wine Show in 2005, the 3 Associations of wine-producers of the province coincide. The debate resulting from that meeting about the problems of the sector, led them to meet periodically and to define strategies resulting in benefits for all the wine-producers of Granada, with the main purpose of finding institutional supports that favor the acknowledgement of the vinicultural sector in the region, as well as to protect and promote the products produced in it. After consecutive meetings, the 23rd of January of 2008 the named ASOCIACION VINOS DE GRANADA [Granada Wine Association] was born with the purpose of managing the mention VINO DE CALIDAD DE GRANADA [Quality Wine from Granada], which is thereafter recognized as PROTECTED DESIGNATION OF ORIGIN after the publication of the Regulations (EC) No. 607/2009 of the Commission of 14th of July of 2009, which establishes certain provisions to apply the Regulations (EC) No. 479/2008 of the Council, concerning the designations of origin and protected geographical indications to the traditional terms, to labeling and to the presentation of certain vinicultural products.

The abovementioned Regulations recognize the V.C.P.R.D. [Quality Wines Produced in Specified Regions] as D.O.P. [Protected Designation of Origin], at European level.

The mention was officially submitted on the 5th of March of 2010 by the Regional Minister of Agriculture and Fishing, Mrs. Clara E. Aguilera Garcia. The identifying label Protected Designation of Origin: VINO DE CALIDAD DE GRANADA [Quality Wine from Granada] started to be real with the bottling of the 2009 vintage wine.
