The Rioja Qualified Designation of Origin encompasses an area that is home to 800 wineries, or bodegas, 19,000 vine-growers and over 100 companies in the auxiliary sector distributed throughout the region’s close to 150 municipalities. The public sector is represented through the Designation of Origin’s Governing Board and the various regional administrations involved.
