The history of the Utiel Agricultural Cooperative, also known by its trade name “Bodegas Utielanas”, refers to a pioneering company in the wine sector in the province of Valencia. In the emergence of this cooperative, chamber, association or union, we find a deeply rooted, intense and extensive winemaking tradition in Utiel.
There were also a series of motivations for its emergence. All the farming families from Utiel were (mostly) dedicated to vine cultivation. They had wineries with jars and wine presses at home, where they made and stored the wine.
