Ribera del Duero is located in Spain’s northern plateau, north of Madrid along the Duero Rive and is considered an wine-producing area of significance.

95% of the grapes  grown in this red wine region are Tempranillo. Ribera Del Duero is famous for its extreme and diverse temperatures ranging from –18C to and the quality of its rich, meaty red wine selections. Alternating layers of limestone, marl and chalk under silt and clay topsoil add complexity and character to Ribera del Duero wines.

The capital of Ribera del Duero is the historic town of Aranda de Duero, which boasts a series of antique underground cellars (bodegas) built to store wine. The interconnecting cellars reach a depth of 40ft (12m) in places. And in 1982 Ribera Del Duero was awarded DO status.
