President of the P.D O. Ribera del Júcar
This Wednesday the Ribera del Júcar Protected Designation of Origin held its General Assembly, during which the terms of reference of the institution have been renewed and unanimous approval of the financial management and report on the activities of the year 2011 has been proceeded with.
This meeting has also served the purpose of electing the members of the Steering Board of the protected designation of origin, with the same being constituted in the manner that follows: President, Javier Prósper, representing the winery Bodegas y Viñedos Illana; Vicepresident, Juan Carlos Cabrero, representing the Cooperative Cooperativa San Ginés; Secretary, Julián Carretero, representing the Cooperative Cooperativa La Magdalena; Treasurer, José Miguel Jávega, representing the winery Nuestra Señora de la Cabeza; first Member of the Board, Julián Girón, from the Cooperative Cooperativa Purísima Concepción; and the Second Member of the Board, Javier Pérez, representing the Cooperative Cooperativa Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno.
The reelected President, Javier Prósper, was very satisfied that his partners in the Ribera del Júcar Protected Designation of Origin have again renewed their confidence in him, stating that he feels proud and committed with the institution and with its goals: “My line of work is that of continuity, accordant with the priorities that have always characterized us: the quality of our wines and team work.”
He also emphasized two basic factors: to continue with the promotion of the wines from the P.D.O, taking our wines wherever the possible consumer may be, crossing national borders and, in the second place, maintaining a smooth and trustworthy relationship with the regional administration: “our wager on commercialization and promotion will continue to be very strong and we will still be present at trade fairs, forums, contests and meetings that serve the purpose of making the quality of our wines known to all; apart from the fact that communication with the regional administration must be a priority, with an open attitude of dialogue, because we are absolutely convinced that together and united we can do much more for this sector.”
The President of the Ribera del Júcar Protected Designation of Origin has held the post since December of 2003, with this being his third mandate. He is a Certified Agriculturist by profession, connected with the wine sector by vocation and he has no qualms in praising the tremendous team work carried out by the nine cooperatives and companies that make up the protected designation of origin and in corroborating the continuous wager on quality.
The Ribera del Júcar Protected Designation of Origin saw the light in the year 2003 and it currently boasts an area of more than 9,000 hectares of vineyards, located in the Cuenca municipalities of Casas de Benítez, Casas de Fernando Alonso, Casas de Guijarro, Casas de Haro, El Picazo, Pozoamargo and Sisante.
Nine cooperative wineries and companies make up the protected designation: Cooperativa San Ginés, from Casas de Benítez; Purísima Concepción, from Casas de Fernando Alonso; Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno, from Sisante; La Magdalena, from Casas de Haro; Nuestra Señora de la Cabeza, from Pozoamargo; Casa de los Simarros, from Casas de Haro; Bodega Artesanal Ana María Carretero Carretero, from Casas de Haro; Bodegas and Viñedos Illana, from Pozoamargo.
Approximately sixty percent of the production of Ribera del Júcar Protected Designation of Origin wines are exported, all bottled; specifically, these wines can be found in countries such as the United States, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, Great Britain, Germany…
Prósper asserts that the P.D.O has demonstrated that its wineries and cooperatives are fully prepared, technologically and in human capital, for exporting, however, he also affirms that “although the foreign market is of great importance, our natural market should be our own country, something we must not forget, hence we must continue working with and for the same.”
