Catalunya DO

The DO Catalunya was created in 1999 covering all the traditional grape planting areas, putting on top of the existing catalan DO's and offering the DO's certification for wineries located in excluded DO areas with high quality wines.

The DO Catalunya allows the wine's production with greater regulatory flexibility, affording cupages between varieties from different regions, with the aim to provide a commercial product with a symbol of identity, respecting its origin's philosophy and the qualitative procedures generally admitted.
