Description to D.O. Ribera del Duero

The DO area in the northern Spanish region Castile and Leon extends along the Douro River (which subsequently crosses the Portuguese border and is called there Douro) over a length of over one hundred kilometers. Characteristic of the area are due to the size of the different soil types which also gives a variety of wine styles and qualities. The vineyards cover 18,600 hectares of vineyards mostly in the highlands between 750 and 850 meters above sea level. The climate is characterized by very hot temperatures of up to 40 ° C during the day and a drop to 15 ° C at night. These strong fluctuations in temperature or the nocturnal resting phase have a very positive effect on the nutrient uptake and the acidity of the grapes.
