The regulation of a Denomination of Origin is fundamental so that the products it protects always maintain the levels of quality and excellence that define said Denomination.
Speaking clearly. Without good advice from a Designation of Origin Regulator, any product (in our case the Table Grape) could benefit from our effort and prestige without having to fulfill the requirements to carry this label.
In the case of the Bagged Grape Vinalopo, the Regulatory Council acquires even more importance. Because our bagging process is unique in the world and gives an unparalleled flavor and texture to our grapes.
On June 1, 2017, the ORDEN of the Ministry of Agriculture, Environment, Climate Change and Rural Development was published in the Official Diari of the Valencian Government, approving the Regulation of the
Protected Designation of Origin Vinalopó Bagged Table Grape and its Regulatory Council.
