Arribes Wine Region Guide

Discover the Essence of Elegance - Uncork the Beauty of this Wine Region!


Last updated: November 27, 2023


Castilla y Leon was a late starter to the modern wine renaissance; Ribera del Duero, for example, was not awarded DO (appellation) status until 1982. Yet the region has more than made up for lost time. Today the arid plains of ‘old castile’ play host to a number of emerging DOs that are starting to find their feet. Chief among them is D.O. Arribes, situated close to the border with Portugal. It has long been associated with the esoteric Juan Garcia variety, producing concentrated and aromatic red wines that suffered from occasional rusticity in the past. However, the range of varieties planted in Arribes has increased significantly over the past decade, while real investment has raised standards of viticulture and winemaking. Take note: Arribes is on the up.
