the plateau which extends south of the province of Valladolid, near the river Duero, lie the vineyards of Rueda. The distinctly continental climate and the characteristic soils covered by rolling stones called "cascajos" are the two essential features of this flat geography. Here the white variety Verdejo dominates, providing wines with great freshness and elegance.
long wine growing tradition and prestige reached a climax from 1600 on, during the Spanish Golden Age. By then, the "golden wines" of Rueda became the wines of the Spanish Royal Court. After centuries of expansion, the area was formally converted into an appellation in 1980. Today Rueda occupies nearly 13,000 hectares spread over 74 municipalities.
the area of greatest concentration of vineyards and quality is the triangle between the towns of Rueda, La Seca and Serrada. Right in this area are the vineyards and facilities of our Rueda winegrower, Val de Vid.
