Since ancient times, wine has play an important role in almost all civilizations. Full of symbolism, steeped in religiosity and mysticism, from very early times wine has appeared in literature and customs, becoming a source of legend and an inspiration for myths. In a world filled with an enormous range of grape varieties, oenology teams are able to create batches of different wines with distinct personalities. Often produced from grapes from the broadest range of origins, the traditionally labelled table wine is today an option for all producers with appropriate technological processes and a technical team to control quality from the vineyard to packaging, which continues to ensure the quality of these products under the control of the Vineyard and Wine Institute (IVV).
According to the IVV, these are wines intended for human consumption that do not fit into the quality classes, such as: DO (Designation of Origin); PDO (Protected Designation of Origin); CDO (Controlled Designation of Origin); GI (Geographical Indication); PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) or Regional Wine are considered wines. They must comply with prevailing national and Community provisions.
