SPAIN: Government approves La Mancha regulations
Spain's ministry of agriculture has approved winemaking regulations for the Uclés appellation in Castilla La Mancha.
The regulations give wine from the appellation protection under domestic and international law, trade association Wines from Spain said last weekend.
Authorised grape varieties for quality wine made in Uclés are the red varietals Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Grenache.
The appellation was formed in 2003 by eight local wineries that were keen to promote Uclés' potential to make "quality wines", Wines from Spain added.
