RUEDA Regulatory Board

Quality and Identity

The very first meeting to establish the provisional Regulatory Board responsible for creating the Rueda Designation of Origin was held in 1977. 

Official status was granted to the region by the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture on January 12, 1980, making Rueda the first official wine appellation in Castilla y León, an achievement following several years of work by producers to gain recognition and protection for Rueda’s native varietal, Verdejo.

“The Rueda Designation of Origin is an area specialised in white wines”.

Boasting outstanding natural resources for the production of high-quality wines, the Rueda Designation of Origin is renowned in Spain and worldwide as an area specialised in white wines. Red and rosé wines have also been sold under the Rueda Designation of Origin since August 5, 2008.

The production area demarcated by the Rueda appellation is located in the Castilla y León region and is made up of 74 municipalities: 53 in the south of the Valladolid province, 17 in western Segovia, and four in northern Ávila.
