The wine region Ribera del Duero
Located in the middle of Castilia-León, Ribera del Duero is named after the river Duero which flows through the region.
Geographically, Ribera del Duero is a 115 km wide and 35 km broad land stripe on a Castilian high plateau which is divided in the provinces Burgos, Segovia, Soria and Valladolid. The soil is sandy and it is based on massive layers of limestone.
Little rainfall, a dry climate and 2350 hours of sun per year combined with a nutrient-rich soil provide perfect wine growing conditions.
The Palatinate wine region (Pfalz)
The Palatinate as a region for wine cultivation has a very long tradition which their people are aware and proud of and maintain adequately. The 85 km wide wine region in the east of the Haardt-Mountains has become the second biggest wine cultivation area in Germany. Every 3rd bottle that is bought in Germany has its origin in the Palatinate!
The mainly pressed red berries are Portugieser, Pinot Noir and Dornfelder. Among experts these are well established kinds of wines in the German wine culture.
The red grapes make about 40% of all the wines produced in Germany. Every year you can find them with top scores at national wine competitions.
