CVRA - Comissão Vitivinícola Regional Alentejana
The Comissão Vitivinícola Regional Alentejana (CVRA)
– Alentejo Regional Winegrowing Commission - was founded in 1989 as a private institution dedicated to certifying, controlling and protecting the Alentejo PDO and Alentejano PGI wines.
It is also responsible for promoting the Alentejo wines both domestically and in select international markets. Funding for the CVRA comes from the sale of certification seals to be placed on the back label of Alentejo bottles to guarantee the origin of the wine.
