“Rescuing parrales entrerrianos” is the name of the contest that seeks to recover the wine identity of the province.
We usually associate provinces such as Mendoza and Saint John with the exciting universe of wine. However, they are not the only ones. Entre Ríos also has a strong wine identity, a little forgotten and a little unknown. The Entrerrian Parrals have stories to tell, and a group of women are determined to listen to them.
The Association “Women Entrerrianas del vino” has launched a competition aimed at recovering the productive identity of the province. Although, more than just a contest, it's a call. The invitation is addressed to all those who own entrerrian grales in their home. The objective is to know the history of the grillages, analyze their species and form a wine map. For what? To perform a cultural and productive rescue of the Entrerriana grapes . A real rescue mission!
This call also reports on a glorious past in which Entrerrians wines were of high quality. A time when that fame came to its end, the product of a resounding ban. A law that forced the province to change the line.
There's a little-known fact in our history. In 1928, Entre Ríos was the fourth wine region in the country. But the crisis of 30, coupled with pressure from the Cuyana provinces, led to Law 12,137. What did that law say? That Entre Ríos had to drastically reduce its production. The large cellars closed and the activity was limited to the production of wine for family consumption.
The ban on the cultivation of grapes for vinification was maintained for Entre Ríos until 1993. From then on, it was possible to produce and market wine throughout Argentina.
The commitment and determination of this association of Entrerriana women seeks to recover the lost identity of the Entrerrian Parrals. This is the text call.
Maybe you have a grape at home. Yes, a grape, a vine, grapes!
Did you know that Concordia and the region were thriving wine producers? Did you know that a law forced a change of line? Because the Entrerrian wines were of high quality, some families distributed plants that went to common houses and not to the proposed bonfires. The School of Agroecological Training, together with the Entrerriana Association of Women of Wine , we are going to the rescue of those vines. Still living history of productive wealth.
Maybe you have one, maybe you have a story with those barbecues. If so, contact us, send us a photo and the story, if you know the variety - much better! We will do the analysis of the species and form a map where these plants were sheltered and go in their cultural and productive rescue.
Do you add up? We are waiting for you!
