The wine from the Ribera del Duero
Considered of very high quality because of its great and conscientious care of the mature vines, considered one of the best in this “ Denominación de Origen”. This juice is pressed gently and fast, fermented and grown in oak barrels, to later be bottled. This way, a very pure, aromatic and natural wine with a great taste for gourmets is obtained.
