Ribera del Duero

Ribera del Duero

History and Culture

The Ribera del Duero is a natural region with small hills and fertile meadows following the course of a calm and serene river, the Duero. A landscape of changing colours carpeted with a varying fabric of vineyards and hills. Here in this far corner of the Duero basin is a miraculous combination of perfect environmental conditions for the production of a subtle wine full of aromas.

Ribera del Duero is a fairly young Designation of Origin, but in its scant 30 years of life as a D.O. it has grown to become a reference for quality wines in Spain. Praised and recognised by experts, it now occupies a place of honour in the world wine market.

The Wine

The Ribera del Duero Wine Route runs over the northern plain, where Burgos, Segovia, Soria and Valladolid accompany it on its way along the River Duero, a corridor linking over 100 towns along its 115 km wine-growing fringe.

Time and the bounty of nature have given the whole area an exceptional soil for the cultivation of vines. A climate marked by contrasts that alter the normal course of the vineyards, giving them a character and strength that makes them unique.

Rosé wines, young reds, Crianzas, Reservas and Gran Reservas. All with a common denominator: the Tempranillo grape, native to the Ribera del Duero, which brings the colour, aroma and body which make our wines unrepeatable. Along with Tempranillo, the Regulatory Council allows other varieties: reds like Cabernet-Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Grenache Rouge, or the only authorised white, Albillo. Six varieties of grape for an exceptional and unmistakable flavour that marks the quality in every bottle.

In La Ribera there’s a wine for everyone and every occasion. The more than 900 brands that bear the Ribera del Duero seal are the living image of the 8,000 wine growers and over 270 wineries dedicated in body and soul to growing vines. An effort rewarded when they open a bottle to make you a toast.
