About Drink Ribera. Drink Spain.
Ribera del Duero provides a benchmark for quality in the Spanish wine category. With an extreme climate perfectly suited for quality grape-growing and ripening, Ribera del Duero wines represent the pinnacle of Spanish winemaking and the ultimate expression of Spain’s most noble red grape: Tempranillo. The region became a Denominación de Origen (D.O.) in 1982, and today there are more than 260 wineries, producing top world-class wines.
