Viticulture in our geographical area started with the Phoenicians who introduced the first vines in our territory. During the centuries, winemaking has increased in our province as well as the commercial activity, specially in the last years.
Designation of Origin was created in 1932 after the enactment of the Wine Statute and became one of the most representative and historical in Spain.
Regulatory Board regulations were approved in 1957 when Valencian wines were covered by three Designations of Origin, Valencia, Utiel-Requena and Cheste.
NT Regulations of the Designation of Origin Valencia and the Regulatory Board were published in the Official State Gazzette on 16 November 1976. On 20 May 2011 the order 3/2011 was published and contained the last regulations changes.
