President of the Board for Provincial Development, Vicente Garcia and Javier Prosper
The Provincial Government of Cuenca, through its Board for Provincial Development, will contribute 9,000 Euros this year to the promotion and commercialization of the Ribera del Júcar Designation of Origin wines. This is the commitment that has been acquired today with the renewal of the Collaboration Agreements that the Provincial Institution holds with the four designations of origin that are established in the province.
Benjamín Prieto, President of the Provincial Government, has highlighted the importance of these agreements, which serve the purpose of not only promoting a specific product, such as wine, but also that of promoting an “entire culture, the culture of wine, which also represents the province’s business card.” At this point Prieto reminded us that “we are working along this same line in order to make this culture known to all by way of courses, commented tasting sessions and a diversity of actions that the Board for Provincial Development is leading.”
A culture that is of “great importance for the province’s social and economic fabric,” as highlighted by the member of parliament and President of the Board for Provincial Development, Vicente García, during his intervention, who likewise reminded the audience that more than 100 municipalities from the province are grouped together in some of these designations of origin, represented by about five thousand people, among vine growers and persons employed at the wineries and cooperatives, apart from another spectacular piece of information, which is that currently seven million bottles of wine from Cuenca are being exported and another very significant piece of information; that most of the province’s wineries are in fact cooperatives, instance that is of great social importance in the province.
The Ribera del Júcar Protected Designation of Origin is also involved in this same effort, although with a characteristic that certainly makes it singular, as has been underscored by its President, Javier Prósper, that being that it is one of the smallest designations of origin, yet with an important number of cooperatives that are in need of an even greater boost and support for commercialization of their wines.
To conclude, Benjamín Prieto has encouraged those present to continue working along the same line, reiterating the Provincial Government’s commitment with the province’s agricultural industry and, in particular with the wine industry given its specific importance and weight.
