What does the help consist of?
The green harvest of the grapes aims to alleviate the tension experienced by some wine-producing regions that have a high level of stocks. This initiative allows producers to size the harvest to the storage and marketing capacity of the next campaign.
This is a crisis prevention measure that is added to other tools enabled by the Ministry of Agriculture prior to the harvest, so that the sector can balance supply with demand. In this way, the undesirable effects of a potential oversupply of grapes next autumn that could weigh down the income of winegrowers are avoided.
Thus, for example, last June the Ministry launched the crisis distillation for Catalonia and Extremadura, the two autonomous communities that decided to apply the possibilities regarding wine market regulation enabled by the European Commission for this anus. A distillation of 9.17 million liters of wine, which should be completed on October 15.
It should be noted that the inclusion of this measure in the support program aims to improve knowledge of quality Spanish wines, promote their marketing and promote their consumption in third country markets, with the aim of increasing the added value of our production and improve the market balance and consequently, the competitiveness of our wine sector.
In this sense, internationalization and the increase in exports are considered priorities for the Spanish agri-food sector in general and the wine sector in particular. Therefore, both producer and exporter organizations, the agri-food industry and public administrations are working intensively on the strategy. of internationalization.
