El pasado martes 26 de julio, tuvo lugar en Sisante la Asamblea General Ordinaria de la Denominación de Origen Protegida “Ribera del Júcar”, constituida en el año 2003, procediendo entre otros puntos del orden del día a la elección de presidente y nueva Junta Directiva.
The Ribera del Júcar Designation of Origin saw the light in the shape of a joint initiative of a group of wine cooperatives and private wineries from the province of Cuenca that decided to actively collaborate in the production and commercialization of quality wines.
BRIEF HISTORICAL OUTLINE ON THE VINEYARD IN THE “RIBERA DEL JÚCAR” REGION.
It is perhaps because of historical reasons or perhaps due to the agro-climatic characteristics and undoubtedly, perhaps due to economic matters that cultivation of grapes along with grain farming has deep roots in the region.
The grape varieties included in the Appellation correspond for red varieties to: Cencibel or Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Bobal, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and for whites, Small-Grain Muscatel and Sauvignon Blanc.
50% of our varieties are about 35 to 40 years old, which guarantee a good relation between the production and the quality of the grape.
