The members of the cooperative ratify 2018 balance sheet, consolidating domestic and international sales, despite 22% lower 2017 harvest due to weather conditions La Seca (Valladolid), 30 June 2019.
The members of Bodega Cuatro Rayas have elected this Sunday in Ordinary General Meeting half of the members of the Governing Council. In these elections, members voted to elect vice-president, secretary and six members of the Council, that together with the members that already integrate the board, chaired by the winegrower Martín Obregón, will represent near 300 members who develop their agricultural activity in more than 30 villages of Valladolid and Segovia provinces. Governing Council is entirely renewed every four years.
In the coming years, to lead the winery, Martín Obregón will be accompanied by Raúl Díez Román, who was re-elected vice-president; Ricardo Rodríguez Rodríguez, voted as new secretary; and Álvaro García Prieto, José Luis López Davila, Germán Román Alonso, Eduardo González Castaño, Fernando Vidal Gallego and María Teresa Muñoz Díez, appointed as council members.
The winegrowers of the cooperative based in the town of La Seca passed, furthermore, the management report and 2018 balance sheet, showing figures that confirm domestic and international sales of more than 30 million euros, only one million less than the previous year, despite a 22% lower harvest due to weather conditions (2017 vintage) which resulted in 14% less bottles on the market.
The figures confirm the commercial strength of the leading winery in DO Rueda, both in the Food market and Horeca and nationally and internationally. The increase in turnover is the result of the boost of sales in hospitality and food sector and export, channels where we emphasised selling high-end wine thanks to the numerous awards and high scores of its Verdejo, Sauvignon and Tempranillo brands.
