Ribera del Duero

It is formed by 60 communities in Burgos, Valladolid, Soria and Segovia provinces. It rises up after initiatives and concerns of wineries and grape growers. They have a “long tradition” and their aim was promote the vineyards and Ribera del Duero wines.

The local climate is continental and it has light Atlantic influences: cold winters and hot summers.

The soils are silty, quite fertile and have a high of limestone content.

On the 21st July 1982, the Minister for Agriculture conceded the Denominación de Origen to the Ribera del Duero and approved its regulations. Since then, the Duero River banks has seen in the last few years that the Denominación de Origen has grown: the number of wineries it protects has increased as much as its prestige to become a classic viticulture region within and outside our borders.

Achieving higher quality classification has become our main aim.
