Rioja Denominación de Origin, Consejo Regulador,

Rioja是西班牙最知名的葡萄酒產區,在1991年成為西班牙第一個DOCa最高法定等級的葡萄酒產區。在2017年,Rioja共有超過379家葡萄酒莊被註冊為「陳年葡萄酒莊」,原文是”Ageing Winery”。整個產區共有130多萬個橡木桶,比世界上任何一個葡萄酒產區都還多!


The first document to make reference to protecting and ensuring the quality of Rioja wines dating from 1650, even before in 1102, King Sancho of Navarra legally recognized our prestigious wines. In 1787 was created the Royal Economic Society Rioja Growers, aimed at promoting the cultivation of vines, wine production and trade development. 
用以確保 Rioja 葡萄酒品質的相關文件在1650 便首度出現,Sancho of Navarra 國王更早在 1102 年就以法律形式認定 Rioja 美酒的崇高地位。Rioja 酒農皇家經濟學會 (Royal Economic Society Rioja Growers) 於 1787 年成立,致力推廣葡萄種植、釀造與貿易市場開發。

Already in the twentieth century, in 1902, was issued a Royal Decree which defined the "origin" for application to the wines of Rioja. In 1926 he decreed the creation of the Control Board whose mission was to identify the area of ​​Rioja, control the issuance of the "seal of guarantee" and recommend legal action be taken against infringers and counterfeiters of the name "Rioja". However, until 1945, the agency would not be legally structured. 
進入二十世紀後,1902 年頒佈皇家法令,界定了 Rioja 的「原產地」。1926 年國王下旨,應成立控管委員會,任務是界定 Rioja 產區範圍、管理「認證標章」的發行,與提出法律建議來打擊 Rioja 名稱的冒用與造假。但直到 1945 年,本組織才開始正式建立。

Finally, the Control Board was constituted in 1953, and thus began to lay the foundations for a modern and efficient performance. In the evolution to the present Rioja wine is the approval in 1970 of the Rules of the Appellation of Origin and its Regulatory Board. In the same year when the agency acquired a well-defined structure and functions: "The defense of the Denomination of Origin, implementation, monitoring and promoting the quality of the wines covered were mandated, first, the Control Board."
控管委員會最終於 1953 年正式成立,為葡萄酒現代化與效率化奠定基礎。1970 立法通過原產地法規與法規委員會,讓 Rioja 葡萄酒大步邁進。本組織於同年定義了明確組織與功能:「守護 D.O. 法定產區,執行、監督與推廣由控管委員會授權的優質葡萄酒。」

After several amendments to the Regulation Governing the Control Board, which have been adapted to the needs raised in recent years, quality control systems have been perfected and also has enhanced the promotion. After a long process in which the Denomination of Origin "Rioja" always bet on the quality and control at source, this effort reached its recognition. On 3 April 1991 a Ministerial Order granted the status of Qualified Denomination of Origin "Rioja" first and only in Spain that has this range.
控管委員會母法經過數次修正,以因應近年來的新需求,品管系統逐漸完善,並同時增進推廣力道。Rioja D.O. 在品質與來源控管持續表現卓越,經過漫長的程序,此努力終有回報。1991 年 4 月 3 日,部會法規將 Rioja 提升為「優質法定產區」(D.O.Ca.),是西班牙首個獲此殊榮的產區。
