The Vall de Pop in the Marina Alta joins the Alicante route for wines.
In this region of the Marina Alta the epicentre of wine production is in the Vall de Pop. A commonwealth of nine villages, which have grape vines that are centauries old as their seal of identity. Some wines that in a little over five years, have become a symbol in the Valencia Community, and are an important part of the Guarantee of Origin and a Quality of Wine from Alicante.

Jalon, a tiny but prosperous village ensconced in the northern part of the province, almost in the centre of the fertile valley, has given us yet more proof of how much can be achieved when interests unite towards an identical common goal. Its Cooperativa Sindical de Labradores y Ganaderos (Syndicate Cooperative of farm workers and ranchers) which groups together almost the totality of farmers has already brought about unmistakable demonstrations of how much can be achieved through mutual collaboration. Yesterday afternoon, that is to say the 22nd October 1962, will remain written in local history, because on this day the building which epitomizes the common interests of this agricultural community was built: its solemn and well installed winery.
