Spanish Wine Regulatory Commission asks MAPA sector to propose new solutions to deal with the impact of future outbreaks

The Spanish Wine Regulatory Commission (CECRV) has forwarded the claim to the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPA), as the regulatory council anticipates that the new year will be more difficult than the previous one.

The Spanish wine sector was most affected by the COVID-19 epidemic in the wine regions with the designation of origin, which had a significant impact on wine production capacity and value proposition, as well as various blockades that led to a decline in economic activity, such as the decay of the hospitality channel and the suspension of tourism. In addition, the wines with the appellation of origin will remain exported in 2020, so the impact will be less pronounced than expected at the beginning of the epidemic.

As a result, the Spanish Wine Regulatory Commission has asked the ministry to readjust the solution introduced in 2020 and has proposed that the budget should be increased and the scope of adaptation expanded.
