for this region?

 

Rueda is part of the Castilla-y-Leon region, northwest of Madrid and south of the Duero river. It was pretty much wiped out by Phylloxera in the first part of the 20th century, and became mostly bulk wine producing until bodegas from neighboring regions took interest to replant grapes since the region’s mild climate is so conducive. 
 
Verdejo is the main grape cultivated. This makes dry, fruity, and refreshing wines that are affordable, crowd-pleasing and excellent for parties. Small amounts of Macabeo (Viura) and Sauvignon Blanc are sometimes added as blending components. Some Sauv Blanc produced as a varietal release is also gaining popularity. Very little red from Tempranillo is also produced here.
