Did you know that the Castilla y León PGI, traditionally known as Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León, was created in 2000 and that it is the only Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) for wine in Castilla y León?
Well, that’s the way it is, becoming the most heterogeneous figure of wine quality in this autonomous community, since its delimited geographical area covers the entire territory. In this way, the wines that are marketed with the mention Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León can be young whites, rosés, reds, sparkling wines, sparkling wines, liqueurs and overripe grapes.
There are about two hundred wineries that sell wine of this quality PGI, which since its inception has developed with great but sure steps. In 2019 the sales volume exceeded 168,000 hectoliters. The consumer is mainly national, since two out of every three bottles of Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León are sold in the national market, while one in three is destined for export.
