Reports From Our Favorite Writers

PVA Ribera del Duero Our series of articles on our recent People's Voice Wine Awards Wine Writers Seminar Series continues today with a round-up of reports on a great lunch we enjoyed accompanied by the wines of Ribera del Duero.

Bold and powerful, the wines of Ribera del Duero are a unique expression of what is arguably Spain's greatest variety, Tempranillo. This is a region blessed with old vineyards and a long history of wine production, though many of the most familiar producers are relatively young operations. The fact that the region has only recently come of age means that traditions are loosely defined, allowing producers the freedom to explore what we would consider both traditional and modern wine making with little resistance from the marketplace.

For a wine writer, that means fewer preconceived notions about what a wine from Ribera should be, and as you can see from the various reports included in this article, that generated quite a bit of excitement and interest in the potential of these fine wines. Read on to learn more about the power and the glory that is Ribera del Deuro.

    I have just been in Spain on a Wine Tour at Ribera del Duero and Rioja. I was surprised to see how the Ribera del duero's wines are so different and unlike Rioja wines, altough they are Temperabillo based as well.
