Designation of Origin map

Denominación de Origen (Designation of Origin – DO) is part of a regulatory classification system for Spanish wines.
A semi-autonomous governing body (Consejo Regulador) exists for each region and for each food type, comprising skilled, impartial members who investigate the quality, ingredients and production process of each product, ensuring they attain specific quality levels. Products labelled Denominación de Origen, apart from being of superior quality, are expected to carry specific characteristics of geographical region or individual producer and be derived from raw materials originating within the region. Like most of these designations, a fundamental tenet of a DO label is that no product outside of that region is permitted to bear the name.

The 2013 year map includes 69 Protected Designations of Origin (PDO, Denominaciones de Origen Protegidas), 7 Qualified Estate Wines (Vinos de Calidad) and 14 Estate Wines (Vinos de Pago).

Country Wines map

Vino de la Tierra (Country Wines) is a quality of Spanish wine that designates the rung below the mainstream quality wine indication of Denominación de Origen (DO). It is the equivalent of the French vin de pays. It covers not only still wine but also sparkling wine and fortified wine.

It represents a higher quality than table wine. The labels of Vino de la Tierra wines are allowed to state the year of vintage and the grape varieties used in its production.

the PGI Wines Map 2013 details the 41 Spanish Protected Geographical Indications (Indicaciones Geográficas Protegidas) or Country Wines.
