Seipasa strengthens its commitment to the organic wine sector with Ecoracimo 2018

April 10, 2018

Seipasa, a company specialized in the formulation, development and marketing of botanical-based solutions (biopesticides, biostimulants and fertilizers) for agriculture, reached an agreement with Ecovalia to become the exclusive sponsor of Ecoracimo 2018, the international competition that will choose the best organic wine in the world.

The event will be held on May 12th 2018 in the Castle of Montilla (Cordoba), under the supervision of a prestigious panel of 20 international tasters. The XIX edition of Ecoracimo intends to encourage not only those organic farmers working the vine but also the wineries that produce certified organic wines.

The CMO of Seipasa, Juan Manuel López, insisted on Seipasa's commitment to the organic sector to strengthen its international development and promotion: "Not only does Ecoracimo show full alignment with Seipasa’s values, but it is also consistent with our commitment to natural technology as a driving force for agriculture. From Seipasa we want to support and recognize the great effort made by producers and wineries manufacturing certified organic wines".

Lopez highlighted the excellent moment faced by this sector and remarked the figures that prove it. "Only in Spain, a total of 106,000 hectares are dedicated to growing organic grapes. It results in an increase of 11% compared to the previous year, showing a substantial sign on how relevant is the future of this sector”.

The best organic wine in the world

Ecoracimo 2018 is organized by Ecovalia, Cordoba’s Provincial Council and the City Council of Montilla. The competition is divided into 7 categories with several awards in each category. The highest award - Special Award granted by Cordoba’s Provincial Council-- will be given to the wine obtaining the maximum score within the Ecoracimos Gran Oro category. More than 200 wines are expected to participate in this XIX edition.

Seipasa's commitment to the organic industry also embraces the olive oil sector. Seipasa sponsored the XVII edition of Ecotrama, the Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil International Competition. The event was held last April in Baena, Cordoba, in a format very similar to that of Ecoracimo 2018.
