D.O. RIBERA DEL DUERO

The DO Ribera del Duero is located within a strip of the Duero River basin, about 115 kilometers (about 71.46 mi) long and 35 kilometers (about 21.75 mi) wide, located at the confluence of the provinces of Burgos, Segovia, Soria and Valladolid.

The DO is characterized by an extreme climatology, with a moderate-low rainfall (400-600 mm as an average of rainfall per year) that, together with its dry summers and long and rigorous winters, with marked thermal oscillations throughout the seasons, frame it within a Mediterranean climate whose primary character is continentality.

It is the merging of the word canto-rodado (rolling stone), which are the most common stones found in these vineyards and vera (riverside), because the plots are on the banks of the Botijas stream, a tributary of the Duero River.

Soils:

Formed during the Miocene, it presents horizontal levels, gently undulating, limited by differential erosion, and converted today to the state of peneplain. It is located in the great northern plateau of the Iberian Peninsula, formed by a large old plinth razed and, in part, covered by tertiary sediments.

Loam-sandy soils
