The importance Wine Origins

In wine, location is the key ingredient. In fact, each bottle showcases an authentic characteristic of the soil, climate and temperature of the region, and the uniqueness of local growers and winemakers. When you pick a wine from Jerez / Sherry, it means something to you. The words Jerez / Sherry represent more than a name. They denote a specific wine growing place.

That’s why, the Consejo Regulador de los Vinos de Jerez works diligently to preserve and protect the Jerez-Xeres-Sherry and Manzanilla Sanlúcar de Barrameda names as well as the names of wine regions around the world. When the location of wine true place of origin is misused, consumers are misled and the sanctity of all quality wine regions is undermined. As such, we began working proactively with other quality wine regions that are also concerned with their names being misused and want to eliminate consumer confusion.

In 2005, the Consejo Regulador de los Vinos de Jerez joined the Declaration to Protect Wine Place and Origin. What started as a group of eight regions has now expanded to 20 signatories. Jerez / Sherry is proud to join with Champagne, Napa Valley, Oregon, Porto, Washington State, Walla Walla Valley, Willamette Valley, Chianti Classico, Paso Robles, Sonoma County, Tokaj, Victoria, Western Australia, Long Island, Rioja, Bourgogne/Chablis, Santa Barbara County, Bordeaux and Barossa.

While we may be competitors in the global marketplace, we all agree that each region is unique and, as such, produces wines impossible to duplicate anywhere else. It’s really quite simple: location matters.  We urge you to join us in looking carefully at all wine labels and ensuring that you know where your wines come from.
