Ribera del Duero

Located in Spain’s northern plateau, Ribera del Duero is around 100 miles north of Madrid. The region is characterised by its flat, rocky terrain, and its most famous vineyards can be found around Peñafiel and Aranda del Duero. It benefits greatly from soils deposited by the river Duero and the terrain provides ideal growing conditions for the Tempranillo grape, known locally as “Tinto Fino”.
