The wine growing of Ribera del Duero lies 160km north of Madrid in north-central Spain spanning the wide valley of the River Duero which lies 850 metres above sea level. Whilst Valladolid is the largest city of the region visitors can easily get there from Madrid or Bilbao (240km).
Only in recent times have the large scale wine producers taken over from small scale family producers, the better known ones including Pesquera and Mauro. Its recognition as a quality producer of red wines is thanks to its Tinto Fino grape, equivalent to Rioja’s Tempranillo, which has adapted well to the climate extremes of the Duero valley which involve very hot summer days with cold nights. Such extremes have aided the production of top quality wines.
