Ribera del Guadiana

History and Culture

The Ribera del Guadiana Wine Route covers a wide expanse of land with a great wine-producing tradition that coincides with the six sub-areas of the designation of origin. Cañamero and Montanchez in the province of Cáceres; and in the province of Badajoz: Tierra de Barros, Matanegra, Ribera Alta and Ribera Baja. Due to the distinctive configuration of the land, microclimate and soil of these parts of Extremadura, there is an excellent variety of wines.

The Wine

Wine culture since Roman times.

Archaeological remains witness the region’s wine culture since Roman times; it has held the Ribera del Guadiana D.O. since 1999.

Young white, rosé and red wines have traditionally been made in all the areas of the Route, especially reds, subjected to a long ageing process or in the case of Tempranillo and Grenache, moderate oak ageing. Barrel-fermented young white wines are obtained from the native varieties like Cayetana Blanca, Pardina or Montúa, resulting in modern, structured wines full of nuances, providing altogether new sensations.

Extremadura is also a land of sparkling wines and cavas, the latter only found in Almendralejo under the Cava D.O..
