Rueda

Spain - Rueda

Rueda, north west of Madrid and south-west of Ribera del Duero, is famous for its crisp dry wines. It is one of the best, and most important white wine regions in Spain producing wines that rival those of Galicia.

Rueda is planted mainly with the local Verdejo grape, but Sauvignon Blanc is equally suited to the conditions here. The former varietal, which is is prone to oxidation, has benefited greatly from modern wine making techniques that have retained its vibrant freshness.

The vineyards lie on a flat high plain at an altitude of 600-780m. The River Duero flows through the area from east to west giving alluvial soils, though further south the topsoil is brown and sandy with a gravel and clay subsoil. DO status was acquired in 1980.
