Introduction

Ribera del Duero is located in Castilla y León, roughly two hours north of Madrid. Before achieving D.O. status in 1982, growers sold grapes to co-ops, and wine was sold in bulk. A small group of local growers saw potential for the area and applied for D.O. recognition. The rest is history, and Ribera del Duero remains a relatively young appellation to hold such prestige within the wine world. In this tour, we will visit 2 of the best wineries in the area. 

The wineries in Ribera del Duero, however, have hundreds of years’ experience perfecting the art of winemaking. They produce an array of the most flavorful, full-bodied red wines to please every palate and preference. Learn all about this storied wine region and you’ll be ready to plan a trip and experience it for yourself. 

The vineyards of Ribera del Duero stretch intermittently for more than 70 miles along the River Duero. These sprawling lands feature a mix of different soils, exposures and elevations — some as high as a half-mile above sea level. The semi-arid terrain, ample amounts of sunlight and extreme temperature swings from day to night — sometimes a 50-plus degree difference — create optimal ripening conditions for the Tempranillo grapes that define Ribera del Duero wines’ distinctive character.

Tempranillo is Spain’s most well grape; big, bold and textured, but with plenty of rich, old-world sensibility. The region is home to some of Spain’s most sought after and applauded wines. Riberas are crafted to age, developing complexity over time, yet  balancing acidity and generous fruit, they’re unequivocally food-friendly wines to drink young. The spices, dark fruit and smoky flavors of Ribera enhance anything off the grill, roasted meats, and rich pastas. Ribera del Duero wines can best be compared to Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley thanks to those rich and bold flavors, but tend to be more refined and Old World in style, more balance and less overpowering oak.
