Ecoracimo is the oldest organic wine competition held in Spain.
Last May 12th, Ecoracimo celebrated its nineteenth edition at the Castillo de Montilla, Montilla, Spain. Ecoracimo is the oldest organic wine competition held in Spain and its consolidation has been linked to the growth of the industry itself: Spain currently dedicates almost 100,000 hectares to the cultivation of organic grapes, making it the world leader in the production of this type of wine.
Ecoracimo is organized by Ecovalia, the County Council of Córdoba (Diputación de Córdoba) and the City Council of Montilla, in collaboration with the Regional Government of Andalusia (Junta de Andalucía). In addition, it is sponsored by Seipasa, a company dedicated to the research, development and manufacture of natural products for agriculture.
Biocordoba 2018 will host the Ecoracimo Awards ceremony.
The event once again featured a prestigious panel of tasters, led by the oenologist Rocío Márquez.
Desirée Rubio, general secretary of Ecovalia, stressed that “Ecoracimo’s main objective is to serve as a driving force for organic vine farmers and wineries that produce certified organic wines, by supporting the development of this industry and contributing to its promotion”. For his part, the territorial delegate for Agriculture, Francisco Zurera, stressed the role played by Ecoracimo in enhancing the value of organic farming, while the councillor for Economic Promotion of the City Council of Montilla, Manuel Carmona, reiterated the “commitment” of the City Council of Montilla with a contest that “is committed to values such as sustainability, respect for the land and a different and environmentally friendly way of production”.
