Description:  Halfway between Madrid and Santander lies one of Spain's fastest developing wine regions, Ribera del Duero. It spans the broad valley of the river Duero east of the city of Valladolid, encompassing lands belonging to four Castilian provinces though the most significant are in Valladolid and Burgos.


Then Ribera del Duero is not a new wine-producing region, since wine has been produced here for centuries, but until relatively recently there were only two bodegas whose wines were available outside the district -- Vega Sicilia and Penafiel.

The association of the banks of the River Duero with the vineyards and wine goes back more than 2000 years. Today, after the so called "expansion'' of bodegas in this small region, a lot of its wines can be found worldwide. and its reputation grows stronger every day. Without doubt Ribera del Duero has become Spain's best red wine region.
