2,600 Years of History: Learn More About Ribera del Duero and the Region’s Iconic Red Wines

One of Spain’s top red wine–producing regions, Ribera del Duero is located in the northwest of the country, about two hours north of Madrid, in the center of Castilla y León, Spain’s largest autonomía, or state. Ribera del Duero runs from the east of Aranda del Duero westward to Valladolid. Its name translates as riverbanks of the Duero. In fact, the region’s vineyards flank the Duero River to the north and south, stretching up to the limestone cliffs where the valley intersects with the Meseta Central, a plateau that rises between 700 and 1,000 meters above sea level and varies in width and depth throughout the valley.



Prized for Verdejo: What You Need to Know About Wines from Rueda

Rueda is Spain’s most famous white wine zone. It’s located in the northern central part of the country’s largest autonomía, or state: Castilla y León. Much of Castilla y León lies on the Meseta Central plateau. It’s known as the Land of Castles because it boasts 300 medieval castles dating to the eighth and ninth centuries. The Duero River runs along the northern part of the Rueda region, flowing westward from the east toward the Atlantic Ocean. Most of Rueda’s vineyards are located south of the river; they extend all the way to the province of Segovia.
