Ribera del duero
more than 100 kilometers, banks of vineyards accompany the course of the Duero River, as it passes through the provinces of Soria, Burgos and Valladolid. The great river, which crosses the northern plateau of Spain, gives the character and the name to one of the most famous and prestigious wine regions.
severity of the continental climate, with harsh winters and dry summers, decisively characterises the personality of the Ribera del Duero. This is the land of the Tinta Fina variety, also known as Tempranillo. It produces powerful wines, with a deep elegance and a great character.
Ribera del Duero,
officially established as an appellation in 1982, covers more than 22,000 hectares of vineyards. Most of its surface is situated on both banks of the Duero, at an average altitude of 800 meters above sea level, although some vineyards are located on the plateau, at higher elevations. This is the case of our winegrower, Valtravieso, located on the moorlands of Valladolid Province, more than 900 metres high.
