Rueda and Ribera del Duero

Rueda and Ribera del Duero represent two amazing regions, with very different wines, that you will also find prominent at good wines shops.

Rueda wines are some of the bargains of the white wine world. Produced with a grape called Verdejo, they represent the modernity of the Spanish wine industry.

Ribera del Duero, on the other hand, is about history. The legendary Vega Sicilia winery is here, where some of the top Tino Fino (Tempranillo) is grown.
