WINES WITH PROTECTED DESIGNATION OF ORIGIN (PDO)

- whose quality and characteristics are essentially or exclusively due to a particular geographical environment with its inherent natural and human factors;
- that are produced from grapes that come exclusively from this geographical area;
- whose production takes place in this geographical area;
- that are obtained from vine varieties belonging to Vitis vinifera.
