Ribera del Duero has recently been considered as one of the best areas in the world in the production of quality wines.
Duero River is synonymouys of quality all the way. Ribera del Duero opened to the world later than Rioja.
The Apellation of Origin was created in 1980. Since that time more and more people have become supporters and fans of its wines. Currently they have enormous international prestige. But to enjoy Ribera del Duero you have to consider not only its wines but its towns (some of them medieval towns), its landscapes, its gastronomy, its festivals, its customs.
Ribera del Duero is only 2 hours far from Madrid. The typìcal grape in here is Tempranillo but you can also find some other grapes in a minority.
