DO area (shore of the Guadiana) in the Spanish region Extremadura right on the border too Portugal, It was named after the river Guadiana, which flows through the wine region in a westerly direction. The area extends for the most part in the southern half, the Extremadura Baja. The approximately 22,000 hectares of vineyard area was formed in 1999 from six former land wine areas (VT). These are Cañamero in the northeast (5 municipalities), Matanegra in the very south (8), Montánchez in the center (27), Ribera Alta in the central east (38), Ribera Baja in the central west (11) and Tierra de Barros in the southeast (36 ).
Despite the large extent over 100 kilometers, there is a homogeneous climate with hot, dry summers and temperate winters. There are sometimes quite different soil types, In Cañamero and Montánchez barren slate soils prevail, in Ribera Alta sandy soils as well as in Matanegra, Ribera Alta and Ribera Baja Schwenmmland soils. Tierra de Barros (Land of Clay), the largest and best-rated area, had been registered as a temporary DO since 1979. He has fertile, nutrient-rich loamy soil at around 500 meters above sea level. Due to the easterly winds prevails here extremely hot, dry climate.
