La Riojana, the Argentinian co-operative which claims to be the world's largest producer of organic/Fairtrade wines, is using the forthcoming Prowein show in Germany to launch its Ecologica range worldwide.

The brand is already available in Sweden and Norway, with sales in excess of 1.5 million litres annually. The range includes a 2007 Malbec, Shiraz and Torrontés/Chardonnay.

The La Riojana co-operative comprises 510 members, the smaller producers have 1ha or less, while the larger ones own more than 75ha.
