Five wines of our Protected Designation of Origin have been awarded by the Milléssime Bio Challenge competition that takes place prior to the Fair.
The organic wines produced in the DO Yecla travel to France to participate in the Millesime Bio 2019 fair , which will take place on January 28, 29 and 30 in Montpellier .
