Previously valid denomination (VR) for a country wine in Portugal. It was replaced by IGP (Indicação Geográfica Protegida) with the EU wine market regulation valid from 2009. However, the designation may still be used as a "traditional indication" (not as a wine law indication). See also under quality system.
The wein.plus encyclopaedia is a comprehensive, well-researched reference work. Available anytime and anywhere, it has become an indispensable part of teaching, used by students and myself alike. Highly recommended!Dominik Trick
