Denominación de Origen



  • a classification system for the quality wines in Spain similar to the Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée in France. The DO system covers over 30 different regions in Spain and provides rules for the types of grape grown, methods of production, and yield within each area. A higher-quality category, Denominación de Origen Calificada (DOCa), has been introduced to discriminate among the very large number of wines that fall into the Denominación de Origen system.
