First of all the production of raw materials and their transformation must take place within the region whose name the product bears.

What are the main differences between DOP and DOC brands? First of all their origin. The DOC certification is typical of the Italian territory, while the DOP is linked to a European regulation.

Our DOCG branded bulk wine

The DOCG denomination is reserved to the types of wines which have kept the DOP brand for at least 10 years and which are recognized as valuable in terms of sensory evaluation and organoleptic components.

Classic wine indicates that the wine was produced in a sub-area of a dop or doc. The term “Stock” is atributed to PDO or DOCG products that have undergone a longer aging than required by the reference specification.
