Ribero Del Duero

Ribero Del Duero wine region

The Ribera del Duero is located on the extensive, elevated northern plateau of the Iberian Peninsula and as its name suggests, the region follows the course of the Duero river.

Wines produced in the Ribera del Duero DO derive almost exclusively from red grapes. The Albillo grape is the only white variety grown, white wines being mostly destined for local consumption. The vast majority of production is dedicated to Tinto Fino (the local name for Tempranillo), the dominant red varietal in the northern half of the Spanish peninsula.

Notable producers – Vega Sicilia, Pingus, Pesquera

Notable vintages – 2012, 2009, 2005, 2004, 2001, 1996, 1994, 1987
