“Vino de la Tierra de Extremadura” indicates a category of wines with a geographical indication, with specific characteristics determined by environmental and crop conditions, as established in each Geographical Indication, in Spanish “Indicacion Geografica Protegida” (I.G.P.) of Extremadura.
This geographical indication is equivalent to the indications: regional wine (United Kingdom), vin de pays (France, Luxembourg and the Italian province of Valle d’Aosta), indicazione geografica tipica (Italy), vinho regional (Portugal), Landwein (Germany) or landwijn (Netherlands). The denomination may include needle wines, liqueur wines and overripe grape wines.
“Vinos de la Tierra” are high quality products that have more freedom when it comes to making wines than in the Denominación de Origen” (D.O), in terms of the grapes used, their processing or the quantities of wine they can make. For this reason, many wine producers and oenologist choose this nomenclature to design their new products without so many restrictions as those marked by a D.O.
