DO Ribera Del Duero

The art of making wine in the Ribera del Duero

The History of the Ribera del Duero has gone parallel to the union of the vineyard and the wine, to the fruit of some vines that mark its landscape, the personality of its people and its culture.

It is necessary to go back no less than 2,500 years to find the first wine-making reference in the area: in the Vacace de Pintia deposit, in the municipality of Padilla de Duero, Peñafiel district, the presence of wine residues was identified, which confirms that already then it was known and consumed, at least in sufficiently significant quantities.

During the 1972 harvest, a 66 square meter Roman mosaic was discovered in Baños de Valdearados, considered the largest piece with Bacchic allegories on the Peninsula.

The Denomination of Origin, as we know it today, arises after the initiative of a series of winegrowers and winemakers concerned with promoting the vineyards and the quality of the wines from Ribera del Duero.

The first Act that is included in the books of the Regulatory Council dates from July 23, 1980, the date on which this Body acted provisionally.

Two years later, on July 21, 1982, the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food granted the Ribera del Duero the Denomination of Origin and approved its first Regulation.

Since then, the implementation of new cultivation practices, the introduction of the most modern technologies for winemaking and the rigorous control processes applied by the Regulatory Council have made Ribera del Duero a synonym for quality.
