feel EUROPEAN CULTURE
Wine has been part of European culture and gastronomy for centuries, and it has always been closely linked to the different European territories. And not just because the climate, orography and the grapes grown in each region are unique in the world and determine their excellent quality. It is also because the wines of Spain and Portugal are part of our way of understanding and enjoying life, and they are present both on everyday occasions and at our celebrations and most special moments. Additionally, the winemaking sector in Spain and Portugal has been, and will continue to be, the economic driver of many rural areas, planting a future and preventing their depopulation.
These are all factors that highlight the importance of the link between the wines from Spain and Portugal and the land. This is also reinforced by European Union regulations, which ensure the quality of production and offer quality labels based on a strict system of Geographical Indications and Protected Designations of Origin.
WINE AS PART OF THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET
The Mediterranean Diet, the foundation of food in Spain and Portugal, is considered one of the healthiest diets in the world by the World Health Organisation.
The winemaking sector in Spain and Portugal is aware of our responsibility as part of society, and that’s why we defend moderate, responsible consumption of our wines.
